It’s okay if you don’t agree with us on this – but we’re excited for the Cruel Intentions television show. Now, the movie was all sorts of Gossip Girl fucked up, before Gossip Girl was a thing. But it introduced us to NYC and our love affair with the elite of the world. Yes, we miss it – which is why we’re celebrating the fact that we are starting to see a cast for the TV show.
Taylor John Smith has been cast to play the son of Sebastian and Annette (Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon played these characters in the movie) in the upcoming NBC pilot. Also cast was Samantha Logan, who will be playing the stepdaughter of Kathryn (the role played by Sarah Michelle Gellar).
According to Deadline, “Set in present day, Cruel Intentions picks up more than 15 years after the movie left off. It follows the beautiful and cunning Kathryn Merteuil — the role played in the movie by Gellar — as she vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey (Smith), the son of her brother, the late Sebastian Valmont, and Annette Hargrove. Upon discovering his late father’s legacy in a hidden journal, Bash is introduced to a world of sex, money, power and corruption he never could have imagined.”
We’re excited to see what this TV show has in store. Are you?
