Laugh & Sing at ‘Vampire Summer Camp’

SLC Punk! helmer James Merendino is attached to direct Vampire Summer Camp, a new comedy to be produced by Rose Ganguzza and Frightening Entertainment. Screenplay, credited to Jenny Jaffe and Merendino, centers on a musical-theater competish between two summer camps, one of which is a camp for youthful-looking vampires. A composer has not yet been set for the original songs to be featured in the pic. With a budget in the mid-seven figures, the film aims to begin pre-production in Gotham this fall, with principal photography kicking off November 1. My own personal hope is that they bring an ’80s vibe to the comedy.
