Who Should Play The Mean Girls In Bravo’s Heathers Reboot?

Have you guys watched any of Bravo’s Gallery Girls? I watched the first two episodes last night and HOLY MOLY those girls! Just awful! When you watch a cobbled-together “reality” show you do kind of want everyone to be awful, but this show was just too much. Object of Beauty did not prepare me for this gritty look at NYC’s art world. That horrible girl with the face, not to be a bitch, but do you know who I mean? Give me a break, that girl! What a nightmare. Anyway, Bravo has developed another very good idea for Women, and this time it’s a scripted reboot of HEATHERS! Oh! From The Hollywood Reporter:

Bravo is continuing its push into original scripted programming, adding five dramas into its development pipeline including a reboot of 1980s cult movie Heathers.

The NBCUniversal-owned network, as part of its goal to have original scripted fare on the air next year, is redeveloping Heathers, the 1988 Winona Ryder and Christian Slater feature that The Big C’s Jenny Bicks and Sony Pictures Television initially sold to Fox three years ago.

In the updated take, Heathers picks up 20 years later, with Veronica (Ryder’s character) returning home to Sherwood with her teenage daughter, who must contend with the next generation of mean girls: the Ashleys: the daughters of the surviving Heathers.

Whatever, really. Nothing is precious anymore, let alone Heathers, and I’m sure it will be just perfect, but I DO think they missed an opportunity to do another “reality” version of a fictional work. Like NYC Prep, television’s most successful show, was to Gossip Girl. But. WHATEVER. Only one question remains (I guess): Who is going to play the Ashleys?! Multiple digital recreations of the Olsens? All of the Gallery Girls? Whoever voiced “The Ashleys” on Recess? The Spice Girls? Me and Gabe? WHO WILL TAKE THIS IMPORTANT ROLE?
