It seems that there is a plan for a musical version of the 1989 noir comedy classic Heathers– the one where you love your gay dead son and you get fucked gently with a chainsaw, and look out for Draino in coffee mugs?
I’m dubious about this. Heathersis one of my all time favorite movies. But it’s also a movie of it’s time, which is to say, pre-Columbine and every other devastating school shooting of the last decade. Would the threat of blowing up a school be frowned upon in the post-9/11 world? And who the hell would they cast to play JD? Christian Slater IS JD. And he’s way too old for the part now.
I’m gonna take a wait and see approach.
PS: EW.com is reporting that Veronica Mars herself has read for the role of… well, Veronica in Heathers: The Musical. Kristen Bell? Awesomeness!!! Like that bit of casting, I really do.
