“Fatal Attraction” – Paramount+ Brings the Erotic Thriller Back to Life
Bloody Disgusting reports that the series adaptation of Adrian Lyne’s Fatal Attraction is on the way from Paramount+, and the series will be premiering on April 30, 2023.
Additionally, the teaser trailer will hit the internet tomorrow, March 1st.
Lizzy Caplan (“Castle Rock”) is starring as female lead Alex Forrest in the upcoming Paramount+ reboot series, with Joshua Jackson (“Dr. Death”) playing Dan Gallagher.
“In the film, Alex is the villain of the story, and Dan is the hero and there is no gray area,” Caplan told Entertainment Weekly in a recent preview piece. “Now, audiences have changed so much, we are no longer primed to believe in this villainous woman story.
She’s clearly mentally ill and that’s not something that is really touched upon at all in the movie.” Amanda Peet (“The Chair”) and Dee Wallace (Cujo, The Lords of Salem) will also star.
“The series explores the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity through the lens of modern attitudes towards strong women, personality disorders, and coercive control.” 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, with Cunningham show-running. The movie’s producers, Stanley Jaffe and Sherry Lansing, exec produce.
