EXCLUSIVE: Clueless Sequel? Silverstone's Rep Says No, Heckerling's Rep Says No Comment
The seminal 90's comedy Clueless has certainly spawned some spiritual sequels, but it's never had an actual one -- though that hasn't stopped rumormongers and wishful thinkers from gossiping about the possibility from time to time. Lately, though, a weirdly specific Star story has spread like wildfire online, claiming that Alicia Silverstone and writer/director Amy Heckerling were spotted in Tarzana (the valley?!) discussing a new chapter in the life of Cher Horowitz. Movieline got in touch with reps for both parties to find out what's up.
"I have heard nothing about this whatsoever," said Silverstone's publicist, Elizabeth Much. "I would certainly be very surprised if this rumor has any truth to it." Much is an old hand at swatting down Clueless 2 talk -- last time she was contacted, erroneous reports were saying that Silverstone had discussed the sequel on Graham Norton's talk show.
Then, we got in touch with a rep for Heckerling, who was more mysterious: "Officially, no comment." Does that mean Star had it right, or might Heckerling be looking to leverage this sequel buzz for a career jolt in the wake of her direct-to-DVD I Could Never Be Your Woman? Developing...at least, until we hear that a frantic Brittany Murphy is stalking the streets of Tarzana, desperate to escape the Lifetime movie ghetto.
