Sarah Michelle Gellar recently confirmed that ‘Cruel Intention’ is all set to be made as a TV show. In the movie she portrayed the character of schoolgirl Kathryn Merteuil. In the TV show, she will be playing the same role, but, now, as a married woman, who is finding her life in disarray.
The funny thing is there are more TV shows that were movies first, and were later adopted for TV.
This FX series by Coen brothers have significant resemblance to the movie by the same name. Though each episode seems to be telling a different story, season 1 of the show, in a sense, reenacted the interaction between Lorna Malvo and Lester Nygaard.
It was originally a comic which was later made into a movie starring Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. In the TV show, however, Charlie Cox will play the role of Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer steadfast in his aim toward fighting crime. After the success of season 1, fans are now eagerly waiting for season 2 to begin.
Bradley Cooper, by the grace of the mind-enhancing drug, was seen to be turning from zero to hero in no time. In the ending phase of the movie we see that he has managed to become a senator.
