Level 33 Entertainment have picked up the North American rights to distribute another new vampire-related horror comedy feature and are set to bring it to US theatres this Autumn/Fall with a DVD release soon thereafter. ‘Vamp U’ (formerly known as ‘Dr. Limptooth’) is the joint project for both co-directors and co-writers Matt Jespersen and Maclain Nelson and has been acquired by the independent distributor to help bring comedy with bite to the masses. Adam Johnson plays Wayne Gretzky (a vampire not ice hockey player!) who has vamp teeth impotence after killing his true love Mary, played by the beautiful Argentine-American actress Julie Gonzalo (‘Dodgeball’, ‘Dallas’). Gary Cole (‘Office Space’) and Alexis Knapp -below (‘Project X’) also star.
“Wayne Gretzky (Adam Johnson) is a vampire who can’t grow his teeth. His impotence began when he inadvertently killed Mary Lipinsky (Julie Gonzalo), the love of his life, 300 years ago. To take his mind off the pain, he teaches college history – who better than a guy who’s been around for centuries? Attempting to regain his full power, he enlists help from his friend and colleague, Dr. Levine (Gary Cole). Nothing goes Wayne’s way until a new semester brings freshman Chris Keller (Julie Gonzalo). She’s a dead ringer for Mary and they have a lurid affair, while rumors fly around the campus. But it all sours when he turns Chris into a vampire and her newfound bloodlust spins out of control in a bloody rampage, making the rumors a little too real.”
