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.
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, Spockâ€™s mother is human, leaving Spock to grow up fighting an internal battle between the rational and the instinctual. As Spockâ€™s father, Sarek, tells him: â€œYou are fully capable of choosing your own destiny . . . this is something only you can decide.â€ (…)
Quinto also enjoyed working with two other classic characters who play a pivotal role in â€œStar Trekâ€: Spockâ€™s bi-galactic parents, his earthling mother Amanda Grayson and his Vulcan ambassador father Sarek, played respectively by two-time Academy AwardÂ® nominee Winona Ryder (â€œThe Age of Innocence,â€ â€œLittle Womenâ€) and the British actor Ben Cross, renowned for his role in the OscarÂ®-winning â€œChariots of Fire.â€ Together, the two created a starkly contrasting yet richly sophisticated couple. â€œWinona brought a real tenderness to the role and she really highlights the juxtaposition between her heartfelt way of being and Sarekâ€™s logic,â€ Quinto says. â€œBen 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.â€

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 brothersâ€¦connected by fate but divided by race. By night, Emanuel Jones works within the Italian mob who assume heâ€™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 wonâ€™t be as easy as it seemsâ€¦
