Watch the Red Band trailer for Paramount Network’s upcoming Heathers reboot
Paramount Network has released a brand new Red Band trailer for their upcoming series reboot of the cult classic 1988 film Heathers. The show stars Grace Victoria Cox as Veronica Sawyer, James Scully as JD, Melanie Field as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara. Original film cast member Shannen Doherty will appear as well as Selma Blair. You can check out the Red Band trailer in the player below.
The network has stated, “Based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name, Heathers is an hour-long pitch-black comedy anthology set in the present day, as heroine Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox, Under the Dome) deals with a very different but equally vicious group of ‘Heathers.’ Also starring are James Scully as JD, Melanie Field (Wicked National Tour) as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell (Funny or Die) as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara. Original Heathers cast member Shannen Doherty will guest star as a pivotal, unnamed character as well.”
Heathers was released in 1988 and was written by Daniel Waters and directed by Michael Lehmann. The film stars Winona Rider, Christian Slater, Shannen Doherty, Lisanne Falk and Kim Walker. It also spawned a rock musical adaptation which opened Off Broadway in 2014. The original film was a commercial failure, earning only $177,247 in its opening weekend. It became a cult classic over time, however, and fans still quote lines like, “What’s your damage, Heather?”
