What if Cher Horowitz had been a vampire living in New York City instead of a well-intentioned Beverly Hills fashionista? As if! No, seriously. Amy Heckerling, the writer-director of the beloved 1995 film "Clueless" is the latest to sink her teeth into the genre with a new romantic comedy called "Vamps."
ScreenDaily.com is reporting that the film is "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 jeopardise their immortality." Krysten Ritter ("Breaking Bad," "Confessions of a Shopaholic") has been cast in one of the roles, meaning it's time to take a seat on the Hollywood Crush Casting Couch to find her bloodsucking bestie. After the jump, check out who we like for the role:
With her keen comedic timing, it's a shame it's been more than two years since we've seen this funny girl in a romantic comedy (2007's so-so "Sydney White"). Seeing that her former "What I Like About You" costar Jennie Garth happens to be married to a vampire ("Twilight" star Peter Facinelli), we're pretty sure she could finagle some training.
She hunted the undead in "Zombieland," but we think it's time the actress takes a turn on the other side of mortality. Plus, there's something about a firey-haired, porcelain-skinned girl that reminds us of a bloodsucker. Blame Victoria.
After her role as popular girl Charlotte Banks in this summer's high school musical "Bandslam," we're eager to see this actress-musician take on a slightly more adult role. Plus, just like Amanda, she has a Twilighter to turn to for tips, her "Roommate" costar Cam Gigandet.
Who do you think should star alongside Krysten in "Vamps"? Do you agree with our suggestions or have a few to add?
