Director Amy Heckerling has Alicia Silverstone, Krysten Ritter, Marilu Henner, Zak Orth, Sigourney Weaver, Malcolm McDowell, and others casted in her new vampire comedy. Yes, you read that right.

The premise deals with two vampires living in New York — obviously living the nightlife — who end up risking disapproval from vampire elders. The part that piqued my interest? Malcolm McDowell will be playing the velvet-jogging-suit-wearing Vlad the Impaler . . . who has a fascination with knitting.
