As if! Director Amy Heckerling — whose credits include 80s/90s faves Clueless and Fast Times at Ridgemont High — is jumping in with the likes of Twilight and True Blood, taking on a vampire franchise of her own. According to Screen Daily, Heckerling is currently attached to the developing project Vamps, a romantic comedy about two young female vampires living the good life in New York until love enters the picture and each is forced to make a choice that may jeopardize their immortality.

It’s certainly a different take on the current vampire craze, one that sounds like it could be delivered with a lighter touch. The film is set to star Krysten Ritter (pictured above), who has appeared in such films as Confessions of a Shopaholic and on various television shows (Veronica Mars, Breaking Bad).

As much as this vampire movie craze annoys me, there is no denying that Amy Heckerling has made some fun flicks in the past. So I say we wait and see. Vamps begins shooting in March.
