Favorite cult classic from 1999 Cruel intentions is restarted as a TV show for IMDb TV, Amazon’s first-class free streaming service, Deadline reports. Now the story will take place in Washington, in an elite college, where Greek life dictates the student hierarchy. After the fog incident went awry, the panel system was compromised, causing some dynamic power changes.
Once again, two half-brothers and sisters are ready to go down and get dirty to keep their status, and it sounds as if one of them will be accused of seducing the daughter of the vice president of the United States. The reboot will be led by writer Phoebe Fisher, directed by Sarah Goodman and produced by Sony Pictures Television, Amazon Studios and Original Film.
The original Cruel intentions is based on a novel called Dangerous relationships by Choderlos de Laclos in 1782, and also covers the depraved behavior of elites who used seduction to control and manipulate others. Some topics seem eternal! Goodman has a history of working on Sarah Michelle Gellar’s former vehicles after writing the upcoming series I know what you did last summer for Prime Video, based on the film from the nineties. She and Fisher worked together on the series, so it was a natural collaboration for Cruel intentions.
Most fans probably hope that the new series has some of the camp’s spice and pointless scenes as the original. Recently, the stars of the film Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair discussed why their kiss on the screen lived in the memories of so many people.
“I think the reason the kiss resonated with people for so long is not just the initial value of the shock, but because it was a catalyst for so many young people to help them realize certain aspects of their sexuality and help people. to be comfortable to be what they really are – said Blair.
Gellar added: “This also represents a paradigm shift to a new dynamic towards acceptance in pop culture.”
And it was just a great kiss.
