Alicia Silverstone and Amy Heckerling Bring Girl-Power Twist to 'Vamps'

Alicia Silverstone and Amy Heckerling Bring Girl-Power Twist to 'Vamps'

While the rumors of a Clueless sequel have yet to come to fruition, writer-director Amy Heckerling is re-teaming with star Alicia Silverstone for a new heroine-driven feature, Vamps. In a new twist on popular vampire love stories, the ladies are the irresistible, cursed immortals who question their commitment to an eternal, blood-sucking life after one Vampirella falls in love with mere mortal. Too bad there's no lesbian bite to the Vamps.

While the rumors of a Clueless sequel have yet to come to fruition, writer-director Amy Heckerling is re-teaming with star Alicia Silverstone for a new heroine-driven feature, Vamps.

Working together for the first time since their 1995 cult-classic, the new film taps into a popular pop culture phenomenon: those pesky sexy vampires. But this time, with a twist: the ladies are the irresistible, cursed immortals who question their commitment to an eternal life of feeding on blood after one Vampirella falls in love with mere mortal.

Glorious Alicia (an animal lover, to boot!)

Heckerling will hopefully offer a more pro-feminist take than most undead love stories that heavily rely on chaste women being tormented and tantalized by the dangerous males who literally want to feed off their life force. It should be interesting to see the ladies feeding and preying on helpless men for a change!

If only, instead of falling for a mortal male, Silverstone would ditch the concept all together and make a go of it with her intoxicating dark-haired best Vamp gal pal, co-star Krysten Ritter (Confessions of a Shopaholic, Gilmore Girls).

They’d only have all of eternity to explore their sizzling, blood-sucking chemistry… Now there’s a hot twist on Vampire lore!
