Comedy is said to be the perfect compliment to horror. Personally? I disagree. I like my horror serious and insane, but alas, I’m in the minority. A new cast member has signed on to Amy Heckerling’s horror comedy Vamps that is sure to get some laughs in between all the biting!
According to The Hollywood Reporter comedian Richard Lewis has signed on the project to star opposite Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter, and the baddest cougar in the land, the always sexy Sigourney Weaver.
In the film Ritter and Silverstone play New York socialite vampires whose freewheeling lifestyles are tripped up when blood is pumped into their romantic lives. Weaver stars as the queen vamp who turned them into creatures of the night. Lewis will play a former student activist who works as an ACLU lawyer. Red Hour Films is producing with Lauren Versel of Lucky Monkey Pictures and Molly Hassell. Principal photography begins next month in Detroit.
Look for more soon.
