Iconic film Cruel Intentions is getting a remake for TV!

It was the film that made sex, drugs, and money the hottest commodities on earth, and like it or not Cruel Intentions is coming back – with a vengeance.

The 1999 cult classic Cruel Intentions was one of those films that defined a generation, while also catapulting the careers of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe and Selma Blair.
And now it’s coming back, in the form a TV show.
Deadline.com reports that the remake will air on US channel NBC and it will follow the sexed up life of Reese and Ryan’s character’s son - 16-year-old Bash Casey.
It’s understood that the show will pick up after Bash discovers his late father’s journals and heads to a prestigious San Francisco boarding school.
The original stars Selma Blair, Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Michelle Gellar had the sweetest reunion earlier this year.
Naturally, he finds himself at the centre of the elite school’s numerous scandals in a world soaked in sex, money, drugs and of course, corruption.
Reports have suggested that the film’s original writer/director Roger Kumble will be at the helm of this project along with its producer Neal H. Moritz - meaning that the TV series will stay true to its dark and twisty predecessor.
This news comes after a whole host of cult classic remakes have been announced this year, including Gilmore Girls, Full House, Absolutely Fabulous and the X-Files.
