Amy Heckerling's bloodsucker comedy Vamps acquired by Anchor Bay

Why VAMPS, it's been so long I thought you'd floated off the face of the earth...

Anchor Bay Films announced today the acquisition of all North American distribution rights to the latest film by Amy Heckerling (Clueless, Fast Times at Ridgemont High), VAMPS, which stars Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter, Wallace Shawn and Sigourney Weaver.

Beautiful vampires Goody (Silverstone) and Stacy (Ritter) have been enjoying the good life in New York City. As upstanding, politically correct Extended Life Forms (ELFs), the pair hit a support group, “Sanguines Anonymous,” to help curb the temptation of human blood in between their clubbing and dating schedules. When love steals into each of their lives, the pair’s destiny is set on a new course and they must make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality—and maybe much more.

Rounding out the VAMPS cast are Dan Stevens, Richard Lewis, Justin Kirk, Kristen Johnston, Malcolm McDowell, Zak Orth and Marilu Henner.

A theatrical release is expected near Halloween.
