When it comes to the recently rumored HEATHERS sequel, the original’s director Michael Lehmann has just two words: Corn Nuts.
He’s got another one: “No.” As Lehmann tells Movieline, “Winona [Ryder]‘s been talking about this for years — she brings it up every once in a while and Dan Waters and I will joke about it, but as far as I know there’s no script and no plans to do the sequel. A couple weeks ago everyone started talking about it and I guess Winona said the movie was gonna get made, and I thought, “I don’t know, maybe they did this without me?” But I got in touch with Dan Waters and he said he didn’t know anything about it. So I don’t think there’s any truth to it.”
Despite the insistence of Spock’s mom that she and Christian Slater would somehow return, Lehmann pumps that theory full of Ich Lüge bullets: “a movie as specific as Heathers, which took place in a specific time and specific place and in which many of the characters got killed off, I never thought it made sense to see a sequel.”
The 1988 cult classic involves a clique of popular high school girls whose lives are disrupted by a rebellious new student who convinces one of the girls to start killing cruel classmates.
