Winona to star in Heathers 2

Yes, there will be a sequel to the 1988 cult dark comedy “Heathers,” starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.

Ryder is pretty excited, because it means appearing in a follow-up to the film that made her famous oh-so-many years ago. She tells Us Magazine:

“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.”

In the photo: Winona Ryder and her “Heathers” costar Christian Slater were the Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson of their day. Here they are the Oscars in 1989.

Cast and Character Details of the Maiden Crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise!

IESB.com has posted an overview for the main characters of Star Trek. Winona is mentioned, of course, when talking about Spock. Quinto, also, talk about Winona:

When the U.S.S. Enterprise leaves the dock for the first time headed for the stars, one officer aboard stands worlds apart from the rest: the man known simply as Spock. Spock was born on the planet Vulcan, a world where emotions became so out-of-control that they were done away with forever in favor of pure logic. However, Spock’s mother is human, leaving Spock to grow up fighting an internal battle between the rational and the instinctual. As Spock’s father, Sarek, tells him: “You are fully capable of choosing your own destiny . . . this is something only you can decide.” (…)

Quinto also enjoyed working with two other classic characters who play a pivotal role in “Star Trek”: Spock’s bi-galactic parents, his earthling mother Amanda Grayson and his Vulcan ambassador father Sarek, played respectively by two-time Academy Award® nominee Winona Ryder (“The Age of Innocence,” “Little Women”) and the British actor Ben Cross, renowned for his role in the Oscar®-winning “Chariots of Fire.” Together, the two created a starkly contrasting yet richly sophisticated couple. “Winona brought a real tenderness to the role and she really highlights the juxtaposition between her heartfelt way of being and Sarek’s logic,” Quinto says. “Ben was such a great energy to be around. He has such certitude and a groundedness as Sarek that I was able to connect with him right away.”

Rumour for a new project

What Not
By Mark Harris and Jason Gordon

Crash” meets “History of Violence” – at first glance a gangster film… but one that unfolds to explore important social issue of race, identity, and belonging. A groundbreaking, musically driven urban drama/thriller.

This is the true story of two brothers…connected by fate but divided by race. By night, Emanuel Jones works within the Italian mob who assume he’s one of their own. By day he is forced to be the caretaker for his black foster brother, Carlo, a musical savant that no one knows exists. When these two disparate worlds come crashing together for the first time, Emanuel finds a way to seemingly rid himself of each once and for all…

But he will soon learn that leaving his life behind and starting over with a woman with an equally tormented past won’t be as easy as it seems…

Producers: Henry Boger, James Gibb
Director: Mark Harris and Jason Gordon
(in talks) Actors: Winona Ryder, John Leguizamo
Location: Tennessee
Start: May ’09

Winona star of new Aussie documentary

Claire Danes, Michelle Williams, Winona Ryder and other Hollywood stars will feature in a new documentary about Australian singer Ben Lee.

Titled Ben Lee: Catch My Disease, the feature-length documentary paints an intimate portrait of the 30-year-old star who recorded his first album at age 14.

Lee is famous for hits like We’re All in This Together, Catch My Disease and Cigarettes Will Kill You, and has won several ARIA Awards.

The project, which has been seven years in the making, is by acclaimed documentary and short film director Amiel Courtin-Wilson, who has made video clips for bands like Gelbison, The Avalanches and Joel Turner.

The documentary is about pop music, spirituality, fame, family and celebrity, and includes archival, performance and interview footage with Lee and many of his famous friends, such as former girlfriend Danes.

It has received funding from the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) Premiere Fund, and will have its first Australian screening at MIFF next year. [Source]
