Theyâ€™ve been talking about a â€œHeathersâ€ sequel longer than Coffeeâ€™s come in a decaffeinated variety. Frankly, I just never saw it happening. No offense to Winona Ryder and Christian Slater (who I both adore) but 1989 was such a long time ago â€“ is anybody likely to pay $13 to see the duo bump uglies all these years later? They havenâ€™t been much interested in paying to see either of them in anything of late (and donâ€™t pull the â€œStar Trekâ€ card on me â€“ Winonaâ€™s barely in it) have they?
If anything, I almost expected the film to go the way of most 80s flicks â€“ remake central.
Happy to be proven wrong. If only because Iâ€™m one of a half-a-dozen people that probably would pay $13 to see Ryderâ€™s bottom lip massage Slaterâ€™s.
According to Ryder (via Zap2it), the sequel is indeed in the works. She even goes so far as to â€˜Swear to Godâ€™ that she ainâ€™t fibbing.
“I’ve been wanting to do a sequel foreverâ€ adds Ryder, who plays Spockâ€™s mamma in â€œStar Trekâ€. There is a story, and Christian [Slater] has agreed to come back as a kind of Obi-Wan character.”
No doubt Shannen Dohertyâ€™s going to try and convince the producers the film needs a â€˜Grand Moff Tarkinâ€™ too.
