Few movies have inspired as much devotion as the 1988 original mean-girls black comedy Heathers, with Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, about high school cliquishness taken to its logical, murderous conclusion. So it was just a matter of time (especially in this era overflowing with eighties remakes -- Fame, Footloose, you name it, they're remaking it) until a new iteration of Heathers loomed on the pop culture horizon. And -- surprise! -- it's going to be a musical.
The Hollywood Reporter says the production folks have been workshopping the new Heathers book for a while, with Veronica Mars' Kristen Bell in the lead. And they already have their eye on the movie that'll be based on the stage show. Read the full details here.
