“Cruel Intentions” is going back on screen, and Sarah Michelle Gellar gets a part of it, reprising her role as the evil-plotting Kathryn Merteuil in NBC’s pilot sequel.
According to Entertainment Weekly, it has been over 10 years since movie enthusiasts have seen the famous guilty pleasure, a teen melodrama that changed young adults’ lives back in the era of grunge.
Gellar, one of the lead roles in the 90s movie “Cruel Intentions,” is set to wreak havoc over Valmont International, the company owned by her late brother’s family, Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Philippe). Furthermore, she will also try to ruin the life of Bash Casey, son of both Sebastian and Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon).
“Cruel Intentions,” the TV series, will focus on Bash’s life as he journeys to Brighton Preparatory Academy from Kansas to learn more about his parents. He also wishes to learn more about Valmont’s legacy. However, as he seeks answers about his past and roots, Gellar’s Kathryn will be plotting, as she always has, to gain control over Sebastian and Annette’s son.
Roger Kumble, writer, and director of the “Cruel Intentions” film will reprise his role in the production.
In fact, Gellar posted on her Instagram account a snapshot of her and Kumble, along with the TV pilot’s executive producer, Neal Moritz, reports E! Online. The photo was sided with a throwback picture with former and present co-workers in the franchise.
At present, there has been no confirmation as to when the “Cruel Intentions” TV pilot will air, or for how long. Also, there has been no confirmation if Ryan Philippe or Reese Witherspoon will reprise their roles as well.
