Check out the new teaser video for the upcoming Heathers reboot on the Paramount Network
Paramount Network’s upcoming Heathers reboot has a brand new teaser video. The show’s official Instagram page posted the video, which gives us a look at the power of the click known as the Heathers (Melanie Field, Jasmine Matthews and Brendan Scannell) in their high school. It also features a certain classic line about a chainsaw that is about to make a comeback. You can watch the Instagram video 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 starred 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?”
