John Tucker Must Die originally came out in 2006, following Kate, a new girl in school who accidentally makes three new friends after her classmates Beth, Heather, and Carrie, discover that John Tucker is dating and cheating on all three of them.

Kate, as the outsider, recognizes that Beth, Heather, and Carrie should not be fighting each other when John is the one in the wrong, and unknowingly inspires the three girls to go to her for help in showing John exactly the type of pain he put them all through.

Together, Kate, Heather, Carrie, and Beth work as a team to trick John into falling in love with Kate, only to pull the rug out from underneath him in a desire to show him what it feels like to have a broke heart. Kate, who had watched her mother date various forms of the John Tucker-type, is more than happy to try to put at least one in his place, and quickly gets swept away in the excitement of having real friends for the first time.

The film ends with Kate's friendships with Carrie, Beth, and Heather secured and even the potential of romance with John's brother, Scott, who Kate had been bonding with also throughout the film. Meanwhile, John concludes the film still dating multiple girls, but choosing to be honest with them about his multiple girlfriends, dating openly and honestly.

But what does that mean about what a sequel could bring? There is a script in progress with roles for the original main cast. Are Kate, Beth, Heather, and Carrie still friends? Did Kate and Scott end up together? Does John get a real shot at redemption and personal growth this time? What does the story look like with everyone as adults, rather than as teenagers?

It is still too early to tell exactly what the script and movie could look like or how new characters could influence the plot.

The original film starred Brittany Snow, Jesse Metcalfe, Sophia Bush, Arielle Kebbel, Ashanti, and Penn Badgley.
