CRUEL INTENTIONS Reboot No Longer Moving Forward


It seems that the Cruel Intentions TV sequel is no longer moving forward but may still have a chance in the future.


NBC have decided not to move forward with the project after ordering the pilot. It seems that this was at least partly due to the failure to launch of a NBC digital network that would have had the series as a cornerstone.

Based on the 1999 cult movie, Cruel Intentions was set in present day and picks up more than 15 years after the film left off. Kathryn Merteuil (Gellar) vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey, the son of her late brother, 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.

Sony TV may look elsewhere and rework the project.
