Having begun as a horror staple, these days vampire tales are more associated with angsty teen romance, thanks to the 'Twilight' series of books and movies and the hit CW show 'The Vampire Diaries.' With vamp romantic comedy now being added to the list, we have to wonder: Can a 'Vampire Movie' spoof be far behind?

Krysten Ritter, most recently seen in 'Confessions of a a Shopaholic,' is the only cast member announced so far, according to ScreenDaily.com. It will be the first starring role for the actress, who'll next be seen in the comedy 'She's Out of My League.'

Production on the rom-com is set to start in March 2010.
