First Pics Released for Vamps
07.08.11 by Mandy
What's the best director and actor collaboration in movie history? Scorsese and De Niro? Howard and Hanks? As if! The answer has to be Amy Heckerling and Alicia Silverstone. The two worked together in the '90s classic Clueless and are together again for the vampire-comedy-romance Vamps. The first shots from the movie have just been released on Facebook.
Here's the storyline:
When two sexy female vampires living it up in modern-day New York City each falls in love with a human, they must make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality—and maybe much more.
While Vamps is yet another addition to the vampire genre, it's bound to have it's own Heckerling twist, much in the way Fast Times at Ridgemont High is distinct in the sea of high school movies of the '80s. For instance, while the characters in Vamps choose not to feed from humans — much like the Cullens from Twilight — Goody (Silverstone) and her vampire friends also attend S.A. (Sanguines Anonymous) meetings to help curb their thirst for blood. Love it.
Also good news, from the information given on the movie's Facebook page, it also sounds like Silverstone's Goody has some Cluelessy, Cher Horowitz-type qualities. Goody's motto in life is "sometimes it seems so impossible to make anything good happen, but I guess you have to keep trying." Yup, and I bet she totally brakes for animals, too.
There is no release date yet for the vampire comedy. Krysten Ritter, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Stevens, Richard Lewis, and Wallace Shawn co-star. While that cast is great, wouldn't be even better if it included Stacey Dash?
