Amy Heckerling Rumored to Direct Vampire Romantic Comedy Vamps Starring Krysten Ritter

Vampire Rom-Com: Inspired or Tired?

Yet another vampire story is rumored to be coming to the big screen, but this time it's the ladies who are doing the biting. Krysten Ritter (who is normally relegated to the BFF role) is supposedly starring in a romantic comedy called Vamps.

Amy Heckerling, the director responsible for Clueless, is attached to write and direct the story of "two young female vampires living the good life in New York until love enters the picture." I've always enjoyed Heckerling's work and am intrigued to see Ritter finally cast as a lead, but I'm wary of the premise; it sounds like it's just capitalizing on the recent craze. Plus, almost half of you said you were tired of vampire entertainment over the Summer.

At least this does have a unique angle by making the main vampires female for once, not to mention the much lighter tone it'll have. What do you think of this project — is it inspired, or just tired?
