Filmmaker Darren Stein Is Turning JAWBREAKER Into a Musical
In a recent interview with OUT, filmmaker Darren Stein revealed that he is hard at work on a musical version of his 1999 cult-classic Jawbreaker. He told OUT: "There's just so much love for that movie... We're working on the musical version of it and so it's taking on a new iteration for the stage. And there's another film I'm developing from a YA novel that's very much inspired by Jawbreaker that involves a kidnapping a member of a boyband. Hopefully, I'll be making another dark comedy with crazy fangirls."

The comedy stars Rose McGowan, Rebecca Gayheart, Julie Benz, and Judy Greer as girls in an exclusive clique in their high school. Charlotte Ayanna has a non-speaking cameo role as a murdered prom queen. The film was inspired by the film Heathers, and is often compared to it, particularly the plot involving a popular female clique, and the accidental murder of one of its members.
