A musical adaptation of the '80s black comedy Heathers is in the works, according to Hollywood Reporter. Andy Fickman, director of a musical adaptation of Reefer Madness, is working on the adaptation with "Reefer" collaborator Kevin Murphy. Composer Larry O'Keefe, who earned a Tony nomination for the Broadway version of Legally Blonde, is composing the score. Readings of the script have already been held, with "Veronica Mars" star Kristen Bell playing the lead and Christian Campbell as J.D. The three Heathers were read by Jenna Leigh Green (Wicked), BrokeDown Cadillac lead singer Corri English and Christine Lakin (the CW's "Valentine"). The final cast will likely be different, and while it's unlikely Winona Ryder and Christian Slater will reprise their iconic roles, one never knows—things are a tad slow for those two these days. Producers plan to premiere the show out of town next year and then, fingers crossed, take it to Broadway! Explaining his motives, Fickman just says it would be perfect if the famous utterance, "I love my dead gay son," could be expressed in song. And "Teenage Suicide (Don't Do It)" is already done!
