'Heathers 2' Moving Forward with Help from Spirit Guide J.D.

Wouldn't you love to see how Veronic Sawyer, Winona Ryder's character from Heathers, would use her rising popularity to navigate the cliques of adulthood with the help of Christian Slater's ghostly manifestation? No? Welp:

Winona Ryder said in an interview appearing in the July issue of Empire that a sequel to the 1988 cult film is in the works. "I swear to God," she said. "But for some reason Dan [Waters, writer] and Michael [Lehmann, director] don't want to talk about it." Maybe you shouldn't be talking about it then, lady! Oh, but she went on. "There is a story, and Christian [Slater] has agreed to come back as a kind of Obi-Wan character."

I can't begin to imagine how this would work. There's a reason there isn't a Breakfast Club sequel where the characters find themselves spontaneously reunited in an ear, nose & throat doctor's waiting room (yet). And there's a reason every time you fly home to visit your parents, you see that one friend who's telling you how he's fixing up this really sweet Ford Probe. Some things were just never meant to leave high school.

(Thanks, Crystal.)

(Side-note: having some technical issues today. Internet is bloopers!)
