I suppose there are a few questions you could still ask about the vampire genre: What hasn't been done with it yet? How many movies will just have a small twist on the same theme? And will it end some time?
Not with CLUELESS director Amy Heckerling, who's planning her own female-fronted bloodsucker romcom called, appropriately, VAMPS.
The story 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." So then, SEX IN THE CITY with fangs? Sure, whatever.
The movie will feature gothy Krysten Ritter ("Breaking Bad", CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC) as one of the pale and thirsty femme fatales.
Heckerling hasn't seemed terribly busy in the past few years, although she did show us Paul Rudd's fabulous dancing ability in I COULD NEVER BE YOUR WOMAN:
