"Heathers" Director Doesn't Dig the Sequel Idea

by | January 11, 2007 | Comments

Internet rumors of a sequel to the cult hit "Heathers" have thrived, thanks in no small part to Winona Ryder‘s public interest in reviving the franchise. But the film’s director, Michael Lehmann, thinks we should let it go.

"I never really saw it as a realistic possibility," Lehmann said. "It’s something that Winona talked about for years. She always wanted to do it and Dan [Waters] and I kind of chuckle and say, ‘Well, what would that movie be? How do you make a sequel to a movie like that?’"

That said, they entered a casual form of development some time ago. "There was a point at which we all talked about setting it in Washington, D.C. This was a while ago, because we felt that that’s a territory where people like that thrive. But I don’t know. I always feel like where do you go? I don’t think just because a movie is good or people like it means you need to make a sequel to it."

Lehmann expects to continue fielding those questions though, as Ryder is currently starring in the Waters- directed feature "Sex and Death 101." "Winona’s in Dan’s movie and I’ve seen footage of it. I haven’t seen the cut yet, I’ve read the script and it’s a really interesting piece. It should be really good so that may revive interest in it."
