Lizzy Caplan and Joshua Jackson are heating up the screen in the trailer of the new series adaptation of the 1987 classic thriller, Fatal Attraction. The upcoming miniseries, airing at the end of April on Paramount+, will showcase both stars in their roles as Alex Forrest and Dan Gallagher, whose affair results in dangerous consequences.
Written and executive produced by Alexandra Cunningham, this “Fatal Attraction” series gives a modern take on marriage and infidelity. The iconic scenes of the original movie have been re-imagined to reflect contemporary issues such as mental illness and coercive control. The trailer also reveals that there will be no bunny boiling this time around, as all fans of the cult classic will recall.
While Glenn Close gave a memorable and haunting performance as Alex Forrest in the original film, Lizzy Caplan is sure to make a strong impression in the series. This time, viewers will get to explore Alex’s backstory and understand her actions more deeply. Caplan has stated that the new series gives more depth to its characters and no longer portrays one as a villain and the other as a hero.
