The iconic dark teen comedy movie “Heathers,” which starred Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty, is reportedly getting a second life on the small screen.
According to Variety, a TV series based on the 1988 movie about a girlfriend and boyfriend who take down the popular clique at a high school is being developed by FOX, Sony and Lakeshore Entertainment.
The team behind the project is still deciding how to update the concept 20 years after it’s debut, but said the original characters, Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder), J.D. (Christian Slater) and the “Heathers,” would be included.
“We had the title, and talked about doing a film remake at times,” said Lakeshore’s Gary Lucchesi. “But doing it for TV seemed like a fresh and original idea.”
