Kristen Johnston joins Sigourney Weaver and Alicia Silverstone in Vamps
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Perhaps wanting to make up for the casting of Richard Lewis yesterday, director Amy Heckerling has signed the underrated Kristen Johnston to join the cast of her upcoming romantic horror comedy VAMPS. Johnston will be playing Mrs. Van Helsing, the mother of the boy one of the vampires falls in love with. And yes, let the groans commence regarding her last name. Unless one of the vampires turns into a bat, I don’t think this film could get any more cliché. The film stars Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter, Sigourney Weaver and Richard Lewis.
This movie seems to have zero fan support right now and I have this sneaking suspicion this is going to end up straight to DVD. They may be thinking theatrical release right now, but I can’t imagine this film will screen well. Audiences are just too sick of vampires at the moment.
