Kristen Bell in muscial version of ‘Heathers’?
Kristen Bell may be about to learn how the extreme always seems to make an impression– by possibly starring in the musical adaptation of the darkly beloved 1988 cult classic Heathers, according to Eonline.
Kevin Murphy and Andy Fickman, part of the team behind the stage and teleplay edition of Reefer Madness is manning the film’s under-the-radar transition to the stage, with readings of the material taking place this week. Bell is taking the Winona Ryder-originated role of Veronica in the rehearsals, with her Reefer Madness co-star Christian Campbell playing Christian Slater’s role of J.D., according to the Hollywood Reporter.
While the actors aren’t locks to go with their characters when the show makes its Broadway debut, they are likely candidates to keep their gigs if they’re available.
And just to tie it back yet again to comics, did you know that Daniel Waters, the writer of Heathers, also wrote the screenplay for Batman Returns? Small world.
