We guess Shannen Doherty threw her weight around to producers and they succumbed, because she's in and Tori Spelling is out! According to E!, sources say it's a go with Shannen for the remake, and now it's just a matter of how long she'll shoot. Apparently it all depends on the storyline. So basically, Shannen is trying to get as much face time as possible, and the producers may have to get the writers to do some re-writes!
As for Tori, she's pulled out of the show for personal reasons. She was originally supposed to do a few episodes, but that's been canned.
One thing the writers would like to see come to fruition is the reuniting of Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty on screen. The two didn't leave on good terms back in the day, but they were teens at the time, and producers are hoping the two can start fresh. How exciting!
