NBC Orders Pilot For ‘Cruel Intentions’ Sequel Series | TV News
Brace yourselves, Cruel Intentions fans, because you’re about to get your favourite film back! Or at least, a version of it. The hugely successful ‘90s movie will soon be followed by a sequel TV show, with its pilot already ordered by NBC for October.
The series will develop around Bash Casey, the teenage son of Reese Witherspoon’s Annette Hargrove and Ryan Phillippe’s Sebastian Valmont, who was apparently conceived before the latter’s death. As soon as Bash discovers his father’s journal, he starts following his footsteps by living the – promiscuous – life and, of course, fighting with his step-aunt (Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character in the film).
The movie’s director Roger Kumble decided to create the series after attending the Cruel Intentions musical adaptation (also a sequel) in Los Angeles last spring. The show will be based on the musical’s script, written by Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross. To refresh your memories, watch the original 1999 film trailer below:
