This is one possibility we totally don’t want to say “As If!” to. The 1995 cult classic film “Clueless” is being developed for the Broadway stage by its original director, Amy Heckerling. Heckerling has already written the script and song lyrics, so all that’s left to do is to start filling in the cast. Which, of course, has fans pointing to their favorite pop stars.
There’s only a few special ladies who could fill Cher’s red strappy shoes—and slip into that Calvin Klein dress—but New York Mag’s Vulture is reporting that a certain “Teenage Dream” singer has already thrown her hat in the ring. “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death,” Hecerkling told Vulture.
But just in case the singer can’t commit to the grueling show schedule, Heckerling also has her eye on Iggy Azalea, who recreated classic “Clueless” scenes for her “Fancy” video, down to the yellow plaid skirt and knee socks.
“Maybe Iggy wants to do it,” Heckerling said. “It looked like they had more money for the video than I had for the movie. But I was extremely flattered and I thought she was amazing. And whoever did the costumes, I don’t know how they did that.”
After all, all Iggy would have to do is don the same knee high socks and take the Aussie accent into Beverly Hills high school mode to shut down the likes of Amber.
Who would you want to see as the Broadway styled Cher? Let us know in the comments! Or, watch “Fancy” below to re-live the ’90s right now. Or don’t, whatever.
