First 'Heathers' Reboot Teaser Cuts Like A Chainsaw


This is not the Heathers we grew up with, but then again, nor should it be. Of all the things I never wanted to see, a reboot or remake of my favorite teen comedy was at the top of the list. However, this new version comes with some interesting twists. The Heathers aren't just a trio of spoiled white girls. One is a lesbian African-American, another is gender fluid, and the other isn't some stick figure. It should make for some interesting commentary, at least, as long as the killer one-liners remake.

And for that, the new teaser goes back to the classic "Well fuck me gently with a chainsaw." Yep, it still kicks ass. Jasmine Matthews, Melanie Field, and Brendan Scannell are the Heathers, while Grace Victoria Cox takes on the Winona Ryder role of outsider Veronica Sawyer. As for who will be her J.D. in trying to kill the school's elite? He'll be played by James Sculy. Shannen Doherty will reprise her role as an original Heather, while Selma Blair will also appear.

Heathers hits the Paramount Network early next year.
