Christian Slater to play Obi-Wan Kenobi?

Christian Slater to play Obi-Wan Kenobi?
Caffeinated Clint

They’ve been talking about a “Heathers” sequel longer than Coffee’s come in a decaffeinated variety. Frankly, I just never saw it happening. No offense to Winona Ryder and Christian Slater (who I both adore) but 1989 was such a long time ago – is anybody likely to pay $13 to see the duo bump uglies all these years later? They haven’t been much interested in paying to see either of them in anything of late (and don’t pull the “Star Trek” card on me – Winona’s barely in it) have they?

If anything, I almost expected the film to go the way of most 80s flicks – remake central.

Happy to be proven wrong. If only because I’m one of a half-a-dozen people that probably would pay $13 to see Ryder’s bottom lip massage Slater’s.

According to Ryder (via Zap2it), the sequel is indeed in the works. She even goes so far as to ‘Swear to God’ that she ain’t fibbing.

“I’ve been wanting to do a sequel forever” adds Ryder, who plays Spock’s mamma in “Star Trek”. There is a story, and Christian [Slater] has agreed to come back as a kind of Obi-Wan character.”

No doubt Shannen Doherty’s going to try and convince the producers the film needs a ‘Grand Moff Tarkin’ too.
