“The movie’s really about the exploration of, ‘Do we really want to live forever? What happens? Is it going to be fun to go to clubs and hang out with young people forever or is it not?’ … It was just great costumes and beautiful makeup. You get all the perks of Clueless. I think by the end of the movie, all little girls will want coffins.”

Well I guess it beats talking about how adorable pre-mastication and regurgitating food into your kid’s mouth is, right? I’m not so sure, and I’m not going to hold my breath ’til we figure it out.

Alicia has been cast in a new Amy Heckerling movie, Vamps. From IMDB:

Two female vampires in modern-day New York City are faced with daunting romantic possibilities.

Oh. So, OK. It’s going to be more like a Dark Shadows thing rather than a Twilight thing. Dark Shadows meets Twilight meets Sex and the City, perhaps? And if so, wow! Could this possibly sound any worse? Maybe the cast will be the redeeming factor—it includes Kristen Johnston, Malcolm McDowell, and Sigourney Weaver, too.

As for you, Amy Heckerling, damn. You did Clueless, which was epic, Look Who’s Talking and Fast Times at Ridgemont High, which are classic, and then this? Way to bring it on home to the modern, girl. I hope, for your sake, that Alicia Silverstone can deliver after all of this save-the-world-one-pre-chew-at-a-time thing.
