Released in 1987, Adrian Lyne’s Fatal Attraction is the latest movie to get its own television series, with Paramount announcing today that a series is in the works for Paramount+.
THR reports tonight, “Fatal Attraction is described as a deep-dive reimagining of the psychosexual thriller that starred Glenn Close and Michael Douglas.”
“The new take will be told through the lens of modern attitudes when it comes to strong women, personality disorders, victim shaming and coercive control,” the site adds.
In the 1987 movie…
“A married man’s one-night stand comes back to haunt him when that lover begins to stalk him and his family.”
Alexandra Cunningham and Kevin Hynes (Dirty John) are writing the script.
The original movie’s producers, Stanley Jaffe and Sherry Lansing, are on board to exec produce.
