I just took this screencap from the wayback machine from the SciFiWire (it's called blastr now)

That yes beyond all doubt that ANNE RICE did did approve of the "Queen of the Damned" film (2002) calling it and I quote:

"Well-directed, elegant and intriguing, the film is surely destined to take its place among notable modern interpretations of vampire mythology."

No matter what JTheGoblinKing/Amanda/LegendaireLestat/WhatEverTheHellShe'sCallingHerselfNow (she has so many aliases it's hard to keep up) says (yes i am a member of imdb and a lurker of the Dark Shadows(2012 movie)/IwtV/QotD boards. Yes Anne did once approve of the Movie, once she saw how her "fans" reacted though she quickly "changed her mind" and said otherwise.

Anne Rice approves of the Queen or the damned movie

Charlize Theron's Ex -- Breaking Up Sucks [from TMZ]



While at an art gallery in L.A. this weekend, Charlize Theron's ex-boyfriend Stuart Townsend put on quite a show by sucking face with some brunette lady friend.

Stu's PDA comes two weeks after Charlize was caught sharing an intimate hug and kiss with Keanu Reeves.

At least the feelings are mutual.

Stuart Townsend had his heart broken back in February, but it looks as if he's finally has moved on from his nine year relationship with Charlize Theron.

The 'Best Man' actor was spotted dancing and making out with a mystery brunette at - of all things - the 'Love Them and Leave Them' Art Opening at R and R gallery in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Maybe the name of the show made him laugh. But something certainly agreed with him because - along with all the canoodling - he was pictured laughing and looking like a million dollars months after his painful breakup.

It's great to have him back on the scene again.

Oh how I'd love to be in her place!

Stuart Townsend rocks Lestat in Michael Rymer's Queen of the Damned
By Patrick Lee and Cindy White


In Queen of the Damned, director Michael Rymer's upcoming movie based on two of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles novels, Irish-born actor Stuart Townsend takes a bite out of a role originated by Tom Cruise in the first Rice adaptation, 1994's Interview with the Vampire. Townsend plays Rice's most famous creation: Lestat de Lioncourt, an 18th-century French nobleman inducted against his will into the brotherhood of vampires.

Townsend appears opposite the late Aaliyah, the 22-year-old pop star and actress who died tragically in a plane crash last summer, and Marguerite Moreau, who will soon star in the SCI FI Channel's upcoming miniseries Firestarter: Rekindled.

Australian-born director Rymer faced the challenge of not only following up the previous movie, but also compressing the events in Rice's The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned into a single film. Townsend, Rymer and producer Jorge Saralegui took a moment recently to speak with Science Fiction Weekly about Queen of the Damned, which opens Feb. 22.

From the Seattle Times May 22, 2008

Filmmaker Stuart Townsend eager to screen "Battle" at SIFF
by Moira Macdonald

The Seattle International Film Festival kicks off tonight with something unusual: a film with direct ties to our city. Stuart Townsend's drama "Battle in Seattle," which stars Charlize Theron, Martin Henderson and Woody Harrelson, takes place during the 1999 WTO riots in Seattle. Townsend, Theron, Henderson and other members of the cast will be in town tonight to walk the red carpet before the film's local premiere at McCaw Hall.

Townsend, a Dublin native who makes his writing/directing debut with "Battle in Seattle," said in a telephone interview that he'd long been wanting to tell this story. He remembered watching coverage of the WTO riots on television in Dublin, but said his interest was especially piqued by an essay by environmental writer Paul Hawken about the event several years later. "I thought, it'd be great to make a movie about something important," he said, remembering his own growing environmental and political awareness at the time. "When I read this essay, it really jumped out at me. I vaguely remembered this event, and no one had done a movie about it. I started to research it. I'd say within about five hours, I felt that I was going to tell this story."

'Night Stalker' Rises Again
Thanks to DVD and a run on Sci Fi, ABC's short-lived remake gets more life
By Kate O'Hare


LOS ANGELES -- In the olden days of television, when a show was canceled after only a few episodes, it was tossed in the dustbin of history, never to see the light of a TV screen again. Now in the age of cable channels and DVD box sets, even a premature death is no impediment to a rewarding afterlife.

On May 30, Walt Disney Video released "Night Stalker: The Complete Series," a boxed set of all 10 produced episodes of the ABC series "Night Stalker," which premiered in Sept. 2005. It was a re-imagined version of an unpublished novel by Jeff Rice and two 1970s TV movies, "The Night Stalker" and "The Night Strangler," which starred Darren McGavin as monster-hunting newspaper reporter Carl Kolchak.

In the new version, handsome Irish actor Stuart Townsend took on the role of Kolchak, who was still investigating the bizarre, but this time with a far more personal twist because of the mysterious murder of his wife.

Also on the DVD are four unaired episodes and two unpublished scripts: "Ascendant," by Melissa and Joy Blake, and "The 'M' Word," by the reclusive Darin Morgan, who won an Emmy for his "X-Files" script "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose."

Also, Sci Fi Channel starts airing the series beginning Friday, July 28.

from the video interview on horror.about.com while at the May 30, 2006 DVD release even at Best Buy in L.A. for Night Stalker. I noticed he said a few things during Gabby's int as well so you may want to click th link about to catch that as well.

Sadly this was all he was asked as Staci Wilson (the interviewer) asked Gabrielle some questions as well.

Interviewer (Staci Wilson): You also played an Iconic character, Lestat in the Queen of the Damned movie so you're no stranger to fans of the genre.
Stuart: Used to the iconic roles yeah. (laughs)
SW: Are you a fan of Horror?
Stuart: Yeah I do love Horror. I love Horror movies. Ever since I was about 12 there was a double-bill every Friday night and I used to watch them all. All the classics, so yeah huge fan. It's a huge genre I realize why. I'm still going to see them all the time.


Now I mad some caps of the interview as any clips from the sitem that I've seen in the past they're a bit blotchy and bleh, but I did my best..

(Sorry if the subject seems a bit misleading) Again this isn't really Stuart-related but It's all about Stuart's show "Night Stalker"

Just today I found An interview Frank Spotnitz did for EW.com. The Main subject was about an X-Files movie sequel but he also talks a great deal about "Night Stalker", which is coming out on DVD this coming Tuesday, May 30, 2006.

The Sequel Is Out There
A new ''X-Files'' movie?!? Exec producer Frank Spotnitz tells Michelle Kung about the big-screen resurrection
of Mulder and Scully, plus the new ''Night Stalker'' DVD


''Creepy'' and ''disturbing'' aren't your typical compliments, but for any TV series executive-produced by Frank Spotnitz, both are high praise. The former X-Files producer and staff writer (not to mention ex-EW contributor) chatted with EW about a possible cinematic resurrection of Mulder and Scully, plus finding closure for his canceled (and new-to-DVD) series Night Stalker.

The X-Files part of the interviewCollapse )

ABC pulled Night Stalker, your re-imagining of the classic '70s series, off the schedule in the middle of a two-part episode. How gratifying is it to finally see the show available on DVD?
Very much so. One of the ideas unique to the series was, ''Is Carl Kolchak [Stuart Townsend] what he seems to be? Is he a hero or a murderer? By the time of [the last aired] episode, people were pretty sure he was a hero, and the ending of the two-parter makes you question that all over again. We've also included two scripts that were in pre-production when we were canceled.

Do you think the show got a fair shake from the network?
You never know what might have happened, but we had three huge strikes against us. First was the time slot, Thursdays at 9, opposite CSI, which is arguably the worst time slot you could get for a new show. Secondly, we didn't get any paid advertising — the network made a decision to spend all their money on their other dramas. Lastly, our lead-in [Alias] turned out to be a lot weaker than anyone thought it would be, and as it turned out, didn't even have the same audience as our show. When you have those three things going against you, it's almost impossible to succeed.

So was it painful to sit through all the episodes again for the commentary?
I saw the commentary as an opportunity to reveal as much as I could about where the show was going and what all the secrets were. I explain an awful lot about what the mark on Kolchak's wrist means, whether or not he actually killed his wife, and a lot of other questions I think viewers were hoping would get answered when the show got pulled.

Not this only minorly has something to do with Stuart. This is a Diary Frank Spotnitz kept that was published in Entertainment Weekly magazine (funnily enough he was to be an EW contributor).

I'll put up a scan after the *Diary* bit I just wish I could find a better quality one. I have the magazine itself but I don't have a scanner to scan it in so we're stuck with a low-quality scan until someday, hopefully I can find a better one.

This was in the Sept. 30, 2005 issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.


Diary of a Night Stalker
Former 'X-Files' executive producer Frank Spotnitz chronicles
his efforts to resurrect a 1970s TV cult horror classic for ABC
by Frank Spotnitz

July 15, 2004
Having coffee with my wife, Melissa, when my cell phone rings. It's Mark Pedowitz, president of Touchstone Television. Reception is poor, but the words ''The Night Stalker'' cut right through the static. Mark, a longtime science fiction fan, wants to know if I'd be interested in doing a new series based on the 32-year-old TV movie.

Would I be interested? As a child, I watched endless hours of television — Star Trek, The Wild Wild West, Mission: Impossible — but nothing struck me as deeply as The Night Stalker, which aired as an ABC Movie of the Week on Jan. 11, 1972. It was about a down-and-out newspaper reporter, Carl Kolchak, who comes upon the story of his life when cocktail waitresses start turning up exsanguinated, apparent victims of a real-life vampire. The show scared the crap out of me — and I wasn't alone: It was the highest-rated TV movie of all time (up to that point), grabbing 48 percent of the viewing audience.

Not surprisingly, ABC broadcast a sequel, The Night Strangler, which transplanted Kolchak to Seattle in pursuit of a serial killer who couldn't die. I loved every second of it, as I did Kolchak: The Night Stalker, the TV series that followed in 1974. Although the show wasn't half as good as the movies, it had one very big thing going for it: Darren McGavin.

McGavin, by that time a veteran character actor in his 50s, was unforgettable as Kolchak. Funny and charming, sporting a straw hat and seersucker suit, he was always sticking his tape recorder into places it didn't belong — a perpetual irritant to anyone in a position of authority, most especially his long-suffering editor, Tony Vincenzo, played by the late, great Simon Oakland.

But neither McGavin nor the viewing public was enamored of the series, and by the time the 20th episode aired, the network granted McGavin's pleas to cancel it.

It made sense Pedowitz would think of me to take another crack at it — Chris Carter, my friend and collaborator, cited The Night Stalker as his prime inspiration for creating The X-Files. I was an exec producer of that show, writing on it for eight years. And the similarities between the two were undeniable. But much as I loved Night Stalker, I wasn't eager to put in 80-hour weeks over the next eight years telling the same kind of stories. I said I'd think about it.
