Sarah Michelle Gellar wanted for Cruel Intentions TV sequel

17 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With NBC moving full steam ahead on a small screen sequel to Cruel Intentions, Deadline is reporting that the network has approached Sarah Michelle Gellar with a view to her reprising the role of Kathryn Merteuil from the 1999 movie, and that the actress is currently reading the script.

The series has been developed by Roger Kumble, writer and director of the original film, and will follow Kathryn “as she vies for control of Valmont International, as well as the soul of Bash Casey, who is the son of her brother, the late Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe), and Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon).

Since the end of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in 2003, Gellar has only appeared in two pilots, Ringer and The Crazy Ones, both of which went to series. She has also made occasional guest appearances in TV shows, most recently Star Wars Rebels, where she voices the Seventh Sister.

Gellar Considers "Cruel Intentions" TV Series

18 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sarah Michelle Gellar has reportedly been approached to reprise the role of Kathryn Merteuil, which she played in 1999's "Cruel Intentions," in the upcoming NBC sequel series based on the film.

NBC ordered the TV pilot last week with the film's original director Roger Kumble coming back to direct and pen the script with Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross. Whether Gellar accepts the role is uncertain but she is reportedly reading the script now.

The story picks up fifteen years on and follows Bash Casey, the son of Seabstian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe) and Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon) who leaves behind his small-town Kansas upbringing for a scholarship at the prestigious academy in modern-day San Francisco.

Superficial 'News,' Mineo-Dean Bromance-Romance and Davis' fading 'Star': 31 Days of Oscar

6 February 2016 6:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Broadcast News' with Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter. '31 Days of Oscar': 'Broadcast News' slick but superficial critics pleaser (See previous post: “Phony 'A Beautiful Mind,' Unfairly Neglected 'Swing Shift': '31 Days of Oscar'.”) Heralded for its wit and incisiveness, James L. Brooks' multiple Oscar-nominated Broadcast News is everything the largely forgotten Swing Shift isn't: belabored, artificial, superficial. That's very disappointing considering Brooks' highly addictive Mary Tyler Moore television series (and its enjoyable spin-offs, Phyllis and Rhoda), but totally expected considering that three of screenwriter-director Brooks' five other feature films were Terms of Endearment, As Good as It Gets, and Spanglish. (I've yet to check out I'll Do Anything and the box office cataclysm How Do You Know starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson.) Having said that, Albert Brooks (no relation to James L.; or to Mel Brooks or Phyllis Brooks or Louise Brooks, »

17 years after the original Cruel Intentions debuted on the big screen, the story will continue with a new NBC series. The network recently gave a green light for the Cruel Intentions pilot episode, and now Deadline reports that the network is eyeing one of the original movie's stars, Sarah Michelle Gellar, to return.

Colette vs. Mary Magdalene

5 February 2016 8:39 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here's Murtada speculating very early on the 2017 Oscar race.

There’s usually a real life person in the best actress lineup. It’s not as prevalent as it is in best actor - 4 this year. But we do have Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence). Last year there were Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones) and Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon). Recently we got everyone from Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) to Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Edith Piaf (Marion Cotillard) and most famously The Queen (Helen Mirren) and her 80s nemesis Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep). Now we have two more possible candidates for the 2017 Oscar race as two interesting biopics were announced this week with two actresses well known to the Academy. French writer Colette (to be played by Keira Knightley) and Jesus disciple Mary Magdalene (Rooney Mara). 

Colette in 1920s

Colette is the more intriguing figure, at least to this non-believer. Born in 1873 she was a journalist, »
