More than a decade and a half after the original film landed in theaters, a television sequel to 1999’s Cruel Intentions is in the works. According to the Hollywood Reporter, NBC ordered the pilot for a follow up series that would center on Bash Casey, the son of the late Sebastian Valmont (played by Ryan Phillippe in the film) and Annette Hargrove (played by Reese Witherspoon in the film).
After learning of his dad’s legacy in a secret journal, Casey finds himself in a world of money, sex, power and corruption. Kathryn Merteuil (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the film) will fight for control of Valmont International as well as his soul. The show takes place 15 years after the movie's events.
The team behind the project includes Roger Kumble, who wrote and directed the original film, along with producer Neal H. Moritz, and Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross, who wrote the musical parody staged in Los Angeles.
