I bet you were wondering if Amy Heckerling would ever direct a follow-up to her 2000 film Loser, right? (Ha, joke’s on you, everyone who forgot about I Could Never Be Your Woman.) For those of us who were satisfied with pretending that she just retired after Clueless, today’s a very bittersweet day. The trailer for her vampire romantic comedy ("What do the kids like? Vampires?" – Amy Heckerling, 2012) has finally shown up online. The good news! Alicia Silverstone is in it!
Vamps, which boasts an impressive cast featuring Krysten Ritter (whose brilliant comedic timing makes her my personal unsung hero), Dan Stevens, Wallace Shawn (so that’s what he’s been up to!), Justin Kirk, and Sigourney Weaver, is getting a straight-to-DVD release, which means it can’t be so great. But based on the trailer, it looks pretty funny? And like a cheesy ’90s comedy, which is actually a compliment? Eh, what can you do. It’s a post-Clueless Amy Heckerling movie. I’ll take what I can get.
