What is your damage, Heather? No sequel coming

13135__heathers_l Poor Veronica and J.D. It seems their dreams of reuniting in a Heathers sequel are just that: a dream.

Michael Lehmann, who directed the original 1988 movie starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, says he flattered that so many bring up the idea of a sequel to the dark teen comedy, but it's still not going to happen.

"Winona’s been talking about this for years — she brings it up every once in a while and (writer) 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," Lehmann told "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."
