Horror Thriller FATAL ATTRACTION to Be Rebooted for Event TV Series

Deadline reports exclusively that Paramount is rebooting the 1987 psychological thriller FATAL ATTRACTION for a one hour event TV series at FOX.

The series will be developed by Paramount Television Production with Fox Broadcasting Network commissioning the script. While no details on the plot have been revealed, the site reports that it will be a "reimagining [that] will explore how a married man's indiscretion comes back to haunt him."

Directed by Adrian Lyne, FATAL ATTRACTION starred Michael Douglas, Glenn Close, and Anne Archer. The film centered on a married Manhattan man who has a weekend affair with a woman who refuses to allow it to end, resulting in her becoming obsessed with him. The film was adapted by James Dearden and Nicholas Meyer from an earlier 1980 short film by Dearden for British television, Diversion.

Fatal Attraction was a hit, finishing as the second highest-grossing film of 1987 in the United States and the highest-grossing film of the year worldwide. Critics were enthusiastic about the film, and it received six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actress for Close, and Best Supporting Actress for Archer.
