Gellar Considers “Cruel Intentions” TV Series

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.
