Is Hollywood completely out of original ideas? 15 years after Cruel Intentions graced movie screens, NBC has decided to order a sequel in the form of a television series.

via THR:
NBC’s Cruel Intentions picks up more than 15 years after the 1999 movie left off. The drama follows the beautiful and cunning Kathryn Merteuil (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the film) as she vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey, son of her brother, the late Sebastian Valmont, and Annette Hargrove. 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.
The small-screen sequel, which landed at NBC with a penalty attached in October, hails from Cruel Intentions writer-director Roger Kumble and producer Neal H. Moritz. They are joined by Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross, the duo behind the recent musical parody of the pic staged in Los Angeles. The pair’s send-up at L.A.’s Rockwell Table & Stage in May attracted the film’s four central stars, including Selma Blair, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe and Gellar. Kumble has remained in touch with Ross and Rosin after blessing the musical parody.
Kumble, Ross and Rosin will pen the script and exec produce the Sony Pictures Television project, with Kumble also attached to direct the pilot. The potential series hails from SPT-based Moritz and his Original Film banner. Moritz and Pavun Shetty also will exec produce. The movie, produced by SPT sibling Columbia Pictures, grossed $75 million on a $10.5 million budget.
No one asked for this. NBC can keep it.
