Alicia Silverstone will reunite with her Clueless writer-director Amy Heckerling on the modern-day vampire tale, Vamps.
Silverstone and Krysten Ritter (Confessions of a Shopaholic, Woke Up Dead) -- in her first lead feature role -- will star as two female vampires who live it up in New York until love enters the picture, when each has to make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality.
Do we even need to make a fuss that another lackluster sounding vampire movie is being made? Maybe if these two girls killed the Sex & The City gang, this is something I could get behind. I would hope for a more ensemble film, which this could be, for Heckerling and Silverstone to recapture the magic they had with Clueless.
Both Heckerling and Silverstone seem to have bottomed out when it comes to features. Heckerling directed the comedy classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and had the box-office by the throat with Look Who's Talking. Everyone loved Silverstone back in the mid 90's in the ditzy blonde role in Clueless... that is until everyone realized, she really is just a ditzy blonde. She put the nails on the coffin playing Batgirl in Batman & Robin, and let's be honest guys... the looks faded and faded fast.
Vamps will begin lensing in April. Lauren Versel and Maria Teresa Arida, and Molly Hassell will produce through Red Hour Films and Lucky Monkey Pictures, respectively.
What do you think of Silverstone and Heckerling reuniting for VAMPS?
