So many reboots happening now and it’s only a matter of time before we see Cher Horowitz on screen again played by Alicia Silverstone. Read on for more details.

We would love to see her fashion staples once again and, of course, her one-liners that we all know by heart, “Ugh, as if!” and “Whatever!” Truly, “Clueless” is one of the best films of all time and E! Online‘s interview with Paul Rudd who played Josh, Cher’s boyfriend provided us with a glimmer of hope.

When asked if he’s up for a “Clueless” reunion, “I don’t know. I think they’re getting ready to do it as a Broadway musical. I’ve heard about that recently, which is exciting,” Rudd  answered.

And true to that statement, a musical for “Clueless” is in the works with the writer/director of the film itself, Amy Heckerling.

“Would I want to do it again? I think I may be a little too old for the part now. Maybe I could play the Dan Hedaya role (Cher’s father),” Rudd added.

The film is set to celebrate 20 years on July 19, 2015, and just recently Silverstone talked about the film.

“I mean, I think Amy Heckling is so brilliant… she just touches on a time an a period. And the amazing thing about this movie is that it’s still being discovered. I love when older people, like grandparents, tell me that they love this movie. That’s very odd and wonderful. And then little people who are just discovering it now – it’s just being passed on. It’s timeless. Even though it captured that time so well it seems that people really identify with it.” Silverstone said.

There you have it, Silverstone said it, “it’s timeless” and we couldn’t agree more. And although Rudd nor Silverstone confirmed a reboot is in the works, we are still hoping that there will be one and when it comes to their age now, I think they can still pull it off. Come on, they look great!
