FOX to Adapt ‘FATAL ATTRACTION’ as an Event TV Series
Before there was “Gone Girl,” there was “Fatal Attraction” and Fox is reportedly developing an event series based on the the 80’s flick that starred Michael Douglas and Glenn Close.
The project has already gotten a script commitment, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which will be penned by Maria and Andre Jacquemetton who have previously both worked on “Mad Men.”
The plan is to deliver an event series, however, there is an option for a season 2 renewal, should things move better further along.
The adaptation has been described as the “reimagining of the iconic thriller, in which a married man’s indiscretion comes back to haunt him.” In the film, Douglas played a Manhattan attorney, while Close was his lunatic mistress.
“Fatal Attraction” made over 300 million dollars at the box office when it ran in theaters in 1987. David Madden, the current president of entertainment FOX, had developed and produced in the film, which went on to snag six nominations at the Oscar’s. It easily became a classic thriller that triggered similar movies featuring psychotic women as the plot device.
