The sexy 1999 teen drama Cruel Intentions is the latest film in line to get the TV treatment.
NBC is reportedly developing the film into a series that will follow the son of film characters Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe) and Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon Witherspoon).
The network is working on bringing the film to the small screen with Cruel Intentions’ writer/director Roger Kumble and producer Neal H. Moritz. Interestingly enough, the pair behind The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Cruel Intentions, Jordan Ross and Lindsey Rosin, are onboard helping with developments as well.
Below is a description of the series (via Variety):
The present-day “Cruel Intentions” reboot will center around the 16-year-old son of the late Sebastian Valmont (played by Phillippe in the film) and Annette Hargrove (played by Witherspoon), named Bash Casey. Upon finding his late father’s journal, Bash learns of the family legacy he didn’t know existed. In search of answers, he trades his small-town Kansas upbringing for a scholarship to the prestigious Brighton Preparatory Academy in San Francisco and soon finds himself in a world of sex, money, power and corruption he never could have imagined.
