Former Buffy The Vampire Slayer singer Sarah Michelle Gellar hasn’t been on a unchanging TV array given The Crazy Ones finished in 2014, though yesterday she announced that she’s returning to a informed role, Kathryn Merteuil.
If a name rings a bell, in should, it’s a purpose Gellar played in 1999’s strike film Cruel Intentions, that NBC recently announced they were rebooting. The 38 year aged singer done a announced on Instagram when posting a ThrowBack Thursday post, saying ” “#cruelintentions. That’s right “everybody loves me, and we intend to keep it that way” #kathrynmerteuil is back!!! we am happy to contend that we will be fasten them (and @nbctv ) on a new #Crueltv””
The 1999 film also starred Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Ryan Phillippe, and was an adaptation of French novel Les Liaisons dangereuses by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. The TV array will take place over 15 years later, and follow Merteuil as she vies for control of Valmont International. Also in her sights is Bash Casey (Taylor John Smith), a son of her stepbrother, a late Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe) and Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon).
TV shows formed on films have typically had a tough time gathering an audience, though with Gellar on house Cruel Intentions could be different. The film’s strange author and director, Roger Kumble, is also on house and will approach a commander and co-write a series.
