Alicia Silverstone And Clueless Director Amy Heckerling Reuniting!
We all fell in love with Alicia Silverstone on some beautiful day in 1995, whenever we first saw Clueless and said to ourselves, "Man, this movie should have been dumb, but instead it is amazing." Since then Silverstone hasn't exactly had the career she deserved, showing up in random movies like Stormbreaker and attempting a TV series in Miss Match. Same goes for the director Amy Heckerling, whose last film I Could Never Be Your Woman went straight to DVD.
Could a reunion be the key for them both? I hope so! News broke today that Silverstone will star for Heckerling in Vamps, a comedy about two female vampires living in modern-day New York City and loving it, until both fall in love and must make choices about their immortality. Co-starring with Silverstone will be Krysten Ritter, who popped up in Confessions of a Shopaholic and 27 Dresses but will have her first starring role here.
There are a couple of red flags on this, from the already tired vampire thing to the fact that movies about dating and romance in Manhattan almost always turn out terribly (see Confessions of a Shopaholic). But Amy Heckerling and Alicia Silverstone gave us a wonderful, wonderful movie 15 years ago, and we owe it to them to have faith.
