Or perhaps moreso. 😉

EXCLUSIVE: Clueless Sequel? Silverstone’s Rep Says No, Heckerling’s Rep Says No Comment
Written by Kyle Buchanan | 28 Apr 2009, 1:30 PM
The seminal 90â€™s comedy Clueless has certainly spawned some spiritual sequels, but itâ€™s never had an actual one â€” though that hasnâ€™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 whatâ€™s up.
â€œI have heard nothing about this whatsoever,â€ said Silverstoneâ€™s publicist, Elizabeth Much. â€œI would certainly be very surprised if this rumor has any truth to it.â€ Much is an old hand at swatting down Clueless 2 talk â€” last time she was contacted, erroneous reports were saying that Silverstone had discussed the sequel on Graham Nortonâ€™s talk show.
Then, we got in touch with a rep for Heckerling, who was more mysterious: â€œOfficially, no comment.â€ 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? Developingâ€¦at least, until we hear that a frantic Brittany Murphy is stalking the streets of Tarzana, desperate to escape the Lifetime movie ghetto.
