A few weeks ago, Winona Ryder gave an interview to Empire Magazine. In that interview she said, "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."
Well, it turns out that there is no story and no Christian Slater coming back and whatever God Winona swears to is pretty pissed at her right now. Now this could all be some huge misdirection ploy by Dan and Michael, but I don't really see the point in that. This isn't Star Trek or some superhero movie, it is Heathers. No need to keep secrets. According to Dan and Michael they say that every couple of years Winona just says it. She thinks people want to hear there is going to be a Heathers 2 and so she says it. Nice.
"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."
That's ok. The original is classic anyway. No need to mess with it.
