Malcolm McDowell Bites Into Vamps
He’s joining Amy Heckerling’s comedy

26 August 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Coming Soon

Amy Heckerling continues to pick up actors to appear in her new fanged fiend comedy, Vamps. Malcolm McDowell, Marilu Henner and Zak Orth have all signed on.

The plot, for those just joining us, follows two beautiful young female vampires (Alicia Silverstone and She’s Out Of My League’s Krysten Ritter), who are content to enjoy the nightlife of New York and use the single bachelors of the city as their suck toys.

But then trouble rears its head as they fall in love (not with each other, as we understand it. There's no need to call James Corden), and must decide whether to follow their hearts (is that possible when they don’t technically beat?) and risk the wrath of their senior vamp, played by Sigourney Weaver. The likes of Richard Lewis, Wallace Shawn, Justin Kirk and Kristen Johnston are also on board.

Henner has agreed to play a deathly ill woman who reclaims her former hotness, while Orth will be Renfield, a nerdy follower of Ritter’s character who keeps claiming he’s tougher than he is. And McDowell sounds like he’ll have the most fun, playing Vlad the Impaler, who struts around the city as Vlad Tepish, velvet jogging suit aficionado and knitting fanatic. The comedy stock value of the film just jumped several points…
