Lifetime Plans A “Bad Seed” Remake

Following their much talked about Will Ferrell/Kristen Wiig telemovie “A Deadly Adoption,” cable network Lifetime has announced another high-profile telemovie project.

Lifetime is set to develop a new film adaptation of the William March novel “The Bad Seed,” which has been twice adapted for the screen before, most notably in 1956 with that film scoring multiple Oscar nominations.

The story follows Kate, a successful working wife and mother confronted with one problem she can’t overcome – her daughter is a relentless, vicious, cunning and lethal sociopath.

Barbara Marshall (“Exorcism Diaries”) will pen the script for the new version.
