Variety is reporting that someone from Fox has no common sense what so ever. It is weird enough that Christian Slater and Winona Ryder are already agreeing to do a sequel to the 1989 hit “Heathers.” Now, Fox has decided that it would be a good idea to turn the movie into a TV series.
The writers on the projecy are Mark Rizzo and Bicks.
Rizzo is still kicking around ideas on how to update “Heathers” 20 years after the film became a favorite among the underground set. But the characters from the movie are all expected to be there — Veronica Sawyer (played in the movie by Ryder), J.D. (Slater) and the “Heathers.”
“We had the title, and talked about doing a film remake at times,” said Lakeshore prexy Gary Lucchesi. “But doing it for TV seemed like a fresh and original idea.”
… Some people just should not be given decision making power.
