Heathers TV show trailer

Heathers is the latest classic film title to get adapted into a television series. What was originally going to be a half-hour TV Land comedy series based on the 1988 cult classic was turned into an hour-long comedy for the Paramount Network, which will soon take the place of Spike TV. Like FargoHeathers is planned as an anthology series, with each season being conceived to follow a new group of Heathers.

Below, watch the Heathers TV show trailer.

TV Land is moving forward with its Heathers anthology series. Today, the network ordered a pilot based on the 1988 cult film. For years, a remake and sequel were talked about or rumored, but back in 2009, it was decided television was where the modern update of Heathers would go. Directing the pilot is Leslye Headland (BacheloretteSleeping with Other People), whose name raises our expectations for this particular film to TV adaptation.

Mike Mitchell header

Is your pop culture art collection cluttered with too many huge movie posters? Do you have a full stack of 27 x 40 inch paper laying around and not enough wall space to display? Are you looking for something smaller, more tasteful but still as awesome and exciting? Mike Mitchell is here to help.

Mitchell is one of the most popular artists out there today. He first gained national attention with his “I’m With Coco” poster for Conan O’Brien and has continued to do beautiful work putting a unique spin on popular culture. Last year, his Just Like Us exhibit at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles started a collectors craze and now he’s back for his second show. This one takes popular, and some not-so-popular, movie characters and provides them each with a detailed, classy portrait.

The exhibit opens Friday April 26 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas and, after the jump, you can see about half the images in the show. Read More »

‘Heathers’ to be Reborn as TV Series

There are two ways to reboot classic film properties: when its something that could move a lot of merchandizing or somehow attract a broad audience, go for theatrical. With something that has a more focused appeal (or recognizance) — say, to audiences over 30 — go for television.

And so we have a Heathers TV show in development at Bravo, based on the 1988 cult fave film that helped launch the careers of Christian Slater and Shannon Doherty, and cemented the popularity (har!) of Wynona Ryder. Slater plays a James Dean wannabe whose messed-up home life has led to a certain sociopathic nature; he and Ryder meet in high school, fall for each other, and proceed to kill off all the popular kids. As one does.

The movie wasn’t a runaway success, but it turned into a big deal for audiences outside the mainstream, and had a nice little counterculture impact, skewering as it did many of the social conventions of the mid-’80s. (Or at least the media depiction of those conventions; I’m not sure how many high schools were exactly like the one in Heathers.) So what shape does the story take as a TV show now? Read More »

Every time Winona Ryder does something that interests the movie press (something that doesn’t involve getting arrested) she talks about a Heathers sequel. Listening to Ryder, you’d think there was a packaged project all ready to go, waiting in a studio exective’s office with a white sheet thrown over it, just waiting to be revealed like a classy sculpture. Not so, said original director Michael Lehmann when interviewed by Movieline. Read More »
