Winona Ryder Dreams Of ‘Heathers 2’

winona2Winona Ryder played a grandmother in the new Star Trek movie and she may be starting to go senile in real life. In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, she enthusiastically confirmed that a sequel to Heathers is in the works:

Whatever you hear, there is a sequel in the works. I swear to God. But for some reason the writer, Dan Waters, and director, Michael Lehman, don’t want to talk about it. I’ve been wanting to do a sequel forever  There is a story and Christian has agreed to come back.

Before fans of the 1989 cult classic even had time to do a cartwheel across the living room floor, Lehman responded to Winona’s statement in an interview with Movieline.com:

Winona’s been talking about this for years — she brings it up every once in a while and Dan Waters and I will joke about it, but as far as I know there’s no script and no plans to do the sequel. A couple weeks ago everyone started talking about it and I guess Winona said the movie was gonna get made, and I thought, ‘I don’t know, maybe they did this without me?’ But I got in touch with Dan Waters and he said he didn’t know anything about it. So I don’t think there’s any truth to it.

Perhaps it’s wishful thinking on Ryder’s part. Her filmmography has been pretty slim since 2001. Maybe she should focus her energy on a Reality Bites sequel instead.  She and Janeane Garofalo could have a lot of fun promoting it in Karaoke bars singing “My Sharona.”
