Fox is developing a TV version of the 1989 film Heathers, according to Variety. The contemporary pilot take on the dark high school comedy will be written by Mark Rizzo and Sex and the City‘s Jenny Bicks. Though the show will be a modernized version, it’s expected to include the original characters — Winona Ryder’s Veronica Sawyer, Christian Slater’s J.D., and the Heathers.
