We're knee deep in the age of 80s and 90s TV revivals, and the rebooted nostalgia just keeps on coming!
It's been reported that Cruel Intentions could be coming to television — with a modern day twist!

NBC bought a script with commitment from Roger Kumle, the director and writer whose original film starred Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Selma Blair!
The reboot will center around Bash Casey, the 16-year-old son of the late Sebastian Valmont (Phillippe) and Annette Hargrove (Witherspoon)!
When Bash finds his father's journal, he learns of a family legacy he didn't know existed. In search of answers, he heads to the prestigious Brighton Preparatory Academy in San Francisco and is thrust into a world of sex, money, and corruption!

BTW, this isn't the first time Cruel Intentions almost made it to the small screen! In 2000, Kumble wrote and directed a prequel series called Manchester Prep that was supposed to be on FOX.
The Amy Adams-led series was cancelled before the first broadcast, so the three already filmed episodes were edited together (along with some more sexy nude scenes) and turned into Cruel Intentions 2!
So, even if the new reboot doesn't actually make it to TV next year, we still have a good shot at another direct-to-video sequel! LOLz!
