"Interview With a Vampire," Anne Rice's epic bloodsucker novel, and "Dreamgirls," the Broadway musical loosely based on the rise of the Supremes, are two projects that would seem to beg to be turned into movies. Both projects, owned by Geffen Films, are immensely popular, have strong male and female characters that could easily attract A-list stars and have very cinematic stories. Why, then, have they spent over a decade in development hell?

What "Dracula's" booty really suggests is that there's a market for movies that mix blood and eroticism with 19th-Century trimmings.
