A 90s classic! Cruel Intentions is all set to get an EPIC television reboot


Racy, sexy and hilarious; Cruel Intentions is everything we would want from a television series. 

And lucky for us, the cult classic is officially being re-imagined as a TV show. 


The now iconic film, which catapulted Reese Witherspoon's career into the stratosphere as well as Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillipe, has been picked up by top US television network NBC

The series will work as a sequel to the successful film, which will take place 15 years after the events of the original. 

While the film is essentially a teen rom-com, it definitely had darkly comic undertones. The plot followed a wealthy step-brother and sister's wager to take the virginity of the daughter of the headmaster of their elite New York prep school.

The new series will revolve around the daughter of Sebastian and Annette and the dark plots still orchestrated by Kathryn. 

"Follows the beautiful and cunning Kathryn Merteuil as she vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey, the son of her brother, who was the late Sebastian Valmont, and Annette Hargrove," reads a synopsis of the plot.

"Upon discovering his late father’s legacy in a hidden journal, Bash is introduced to a world of sex, money, power and corruption he never could have imagined."

While many fans would love to see the actors from the first film reprise there roles, there is no suggestion that any of the original cast is involved in the project.
