TV Land's 'Heathers' reboot casts its Veronica and JD
TV Land’s reboot of Heathers, the cult 1988 black comedy about a teen who teams up with a sociopath to kill the cool-girl clique in school, has cast its Veronica and J.D.
The roles, originated by Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, will be taken on by Grace Cox (Under the Dome) and newcomer James Scully, EW has learned.
Cox is no stranger to reboots — she’ll also appear in Showtime’s Twin Peaks installment coming in 2017.
Leslye Headland (Sleeping With Other People) is set to direct the pilot, which will be written by Jason Micallef (Butter). Production is set to begin later this year.
