Winona Ryder Courted For 'Heathers' TV Series

Could Winona Ryder come back and play Veronica in the Heathers TV show from Bravo?  Personally, I wouldn't put too much stock into it, but the writer of the new show is adamant that they'd "love to have her." But, isn't that what you're supposed to say in the situations like this?  I say just recast every part.  That's just me.

As for Ryder, I'm still clamoring for her glorious return in Beetlejuice 2.
"If Winona Ryder wanted to come in and play something, we'd love to have her," Bicks said. "It's a fun way of casting new women that are around her but also her kids."

The updated Heathers, which is in development, picks up 20 years after the end of the Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty starrer, with Veronica (played byRyder in the big-screen version) returning home to Sherwood with her teenage daughter, who must contend with the next generation of mean girls -- the Ashleys, who are the daughters of the surviving Heathers featured in the film.

The writer behind Bravo's Heathers reboot said she's still in "serious talks" with the network, which is "excited" about the project. "We'll be talking to them next week and I hope to have some good news soon about a pilot," she told THR.
