Classic 80’s film Fatal Attraction that coined the term ‘Bunny Boiler’ is heading back to our screens for a reboot; but this time it’s the smaller screen. According to Deadline, Fox has ordered a mini series of Fatal Attraction, which is being produced by Paramount and has Mad Men writer-producers Maria and Andre Jacquemetton executive producing.
The original 1987 film, which starred Michael Douglas and Glenn Close; tells the story of a married attorney that embarks on a short affair with a woman, who begins stalking him and his family and kills his family pet rabbit. I loved the original film, it’s definitely a cult classic, so I’m really in two minds about this news. Part of me is excited because it truly was an amazing film, but then part of me is worried, because if it’s anything like the play that was put on last year at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, then we’re headed for disaster. All I ask is that they keep the intensity of the bunny scene.
