Anchor Bay nabs Heckerling’s ‘Vamps’

Vampire comedy set for release near Halloween

Anchor Bay Films has acquired North American distribution rights to Amy Heckerling’s vampire comedy “Vamps,” starring Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter, Wallace Shawn and Sigourney Weaver.

The film is set for a theatrical release near Halloween.

Silverstone and Ritter portray vampires enjoying the good life in New York City who join a support group, “Sanguines Anonymous,” to help curb the temptation of human blood in between their clubbing and dating schedules. When love steals into each of their lives, the pair’s destiny is set on a new course and they must make a choice that will jeopardize their immortality — and maybe much more.

Film also stars Dan Stevens, Richard Lewis (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Justin Kirk (“Weeds”), Kristen Johnston, Malcolm McDowell, Zak Orth and Marilu Henner.

“Vamps” was produced by Lucky Monkey Pictures and Red Hour Films. Producers are Lauren Versel, Molly Hassell, Stuart Cornfeld and Maria Teresa Arida. Exec producers include Stanislaw Tyczynski, Julie Kroll, Kamal Nahas, John Jencks, Lisa Wilson, Stephen Hays and Peter Graham.
