Screen Daily is reporting that Alicia Silverstone will reunite with Clueless director Amy Heckerling on her latest project, a vampire romantic comedy, entitled Vamps. Apparently, it will “be a modern-day tale of two young female vampires living the good life in New York until love enters the picture and each has to make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality.”
Sounds like a vampire-themed version of Gossip Girls. Lets hope this isn’t just a last minute attempt to capitalize on the Twilight craze. But honestly, who better than Heckerling, who has been responsible for some of the better teen films of the 80′s and 90′s, including Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Clueless and European Vacation. She has only released two films in the last decade, 2000′s teen comedy Loser and the 2007 romantic comedy I Could Never Be Your Woman. Silverstone will play one of the female vamps, alongside Krysten Ritter (Confessions of a Shopaholic, Veronica Mars, Breaking Bad). Production is set to begin in April.
