28 years after its theatrical release, Fatal Attraction has popped back out of its bloody bathtub gasping for air and waving its knife at Fox. In case that wasn’t clear enough, let me rephrase: Fox is adapting Fatal Attraction as an “event series,” and there’s “no word yet on whether or not” the rabbit will be involved.
Fox’s president of entertainment, David Madden, actually developed and supervised the original feature when he was an exec at Paramount. Although exact details are being kept under wraps, Deadline understands the reimagining will explore how a married man’s indiscretion comes back to haunt him.
This isn’t just great news for fans of Fatal Attraction, but for fans of Fatal Attraction references - so please allow me to post my all-time favorite.
