While a number of cable networks across the board have set their sights on developing more original programming, Bravo is dead set on the dark. Previously we'd heard that the network had its eye on developing a TV sequel series to the classic 'Heathers,' but now it seems the talk has turned to another classic, similarly morbid film. Both Bravo and director Robert Zemeckis have turned their heads toward breathing life into 'Death Becomes Her,' but will it leave us feeling holed?
For ages now, the ancient battle between Coca-Cola and Pepsi has raged on across countless battlefields, every advantage begetting yet another defeat, as the corporations strive for soft drink victory. For many, this war has raged on silently, its frenzied carnage confined to a supermarket shelf, but isn't it time we see the drama play out on the screen? Bravo certainly thinks so, crafting yet another scripted drama of its own to follow the infamous Cola Wars of the 1980s, but will the idea fizzle out?
Well, let it never be said that studio executives will eventually run out of past franchises to milk for the modern day. Almost 25 years after the film's release, it seems that 1988's dark Winona Rider / Christian Slater comedy 'Heathers' will make a return to modern audiences, this time in the form of an original scripted series. But will the new outing be a re-telling of the film's explosive popularity concept, or a sequel series?
