Slater signs up for sequel
Many film fans found the cruelty, recurrent violence and black humour of the film cause to attach a cult tag to the movie, which was considered revolutionary for its time.
With this in mind the recently announced sequel, Heathers 2 lets call it, has a lot to live up to.
Although film aficionados will be aware that assembling the same people responsible for one movie's success does not guarantee that of its sequel, Heathers 2 has Waters scripting the movie and Winona Ryder and, most recently, Christian Slater signed up for acting roles.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Ryder said: "I don't know how much is official. But it takes place in Washington and Christian Slater agreed to come back and make an Obi-Wan-type appearance. It's very funny."
Waters and Ryder are currently working on Sex And Death 101, in which the Little Women star plays a feminist vigilante out to punish lascivious males guilty of sex crimes against women.
Heathers creator Waters is taking the director's chair for the film, which begins when Simon Baker receives a bizarre email detailing every woman he's had 'relations' with and every woman he'll have 'relations' with in the future.
