They’re Doing A Sequel To Heathers. No, Really.


Dudes, I’m just too tired to fight the establishment any longer.  So I’m just moving straight into acceptance mode.  Another 80’s movie is getting a sequel.  Sigh.

Hollywood has decided that we need to get a follow-up of the 1988 cult classic Heathers and despite all the denials, Wynona Ryder insists that the project is happening.  “Whatever you hear, there is a sequel in the works. I swear to God.  But for some reason the writer Dan Waters and director Michael Lehman don’t want to talk about it. I’ve been wanting to do a sequel forever. There is a story, and Christian [Slater] has agreed to come back as a kind of Obi-Wan character.”

So there you have it, a Heathers continuation confirmation straight from the pill-popping, scarf-pilfering, jewelry-losing, I’ve Exhausted All Hyphenates, whack job, Winona.

  • If the writer and director don’t want to talk about it, maybe Winona should shut up about it before they recast her ass.

  • This can’t be happening. No, no, no! Heathers is sublime. It is perfection. It came out right as I was entering high school and I have probably watched it a thousand times. This will break my heart because it will suck. Who would they cast? The no-talent MTV crowd, the uber annoying Disney crowd, the bitter and not as cool as they think Twilight crowd? It just can’t happen.

  • Fuck me gently with a chainsaw, this looks like the kind of thing that might induce me to spew red, white and blue.

  • What would the plot be though? And more to the point, didn’t Christian’s character die at the end?

    I miss the fact that she barely had the career she deserves due to her penchant for kleptomania.

  • NNNNNOOOOOOooooo……
