Cruise plays Lestat de Lioncourt, in the film adaptation of the Anne Rice novel. Lestat is an ancient vampire in a tale told to a modern day reporter Daniel Malloy by one of his “children,” Louis.  He tells Malloy of how it came to be that Lestat would change him.  Based in colonial Louisiana, the tale goes on to tell of a young plague victim named Claudia whom he also turns.  The trio travels to Europe to seek out more of their own kind and find far more than they bargained for.  Co-starring Brad Pitt as Louis, Kirsten Dunst as Claudia, Christian Slater as Daniel Malloy and Antonio Banderas as head-vampire Armand. Anne Rice comments on the casting of Pitt and Cruise.

…the worst crime in the name of casting since ‘Bonfire of the Vanities,’…   casting Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer…
