Lisa Wilson’s Parlay Films has acquired all international rights to the romantic comedy Vamps, which will be written and directed by Amy Heckerling.

The film will be a modern-day tale of two young female vampires living the good life in New York until love enters the picture and each has to make a choice that will jeopardise their immortality.

Krysten Ritter is on board as one of the female leads with additional casting underway. This will make the first feature starring role for Ritter, who most recently appeared in Confessions Of A Shopaholic and will next be seen in DreamWorks’ comedy She’s Out Of My League.

Production is set to start in March 2010 with Red Hour Films, Lucky Monkey Pictures partner Lauren Versel and Molly Hassell producing.

Heckerling shot to fame with Fast Times At Ridgemont High but she also directed Clueless and the Look Who’s Talking films.

Parlay Films is a GK Films affiliate and handles third party sales.
