'Fatal Attraction' Takes a Stab At Television

The iconic 1987 thriller "Fatal Attraction" is heading to television in a new deal between Paramount and Fox.

Deadline reports Maria and Andre Jacquemetton ("Mad Men") will write and executive produce the adaptation, which is being developed as an event series.

Directed by Adrian Lyne, the original film starred Michael Douglas as a married New York City attorney who has a weekend affair with a woman played by Glenn Close. However, what he considered a simple fling quickly comes back to haunt him, as Close's character refuses to give up, stalking his family and even (famously) killing his daughter's pet rabbit.

The film was a box-office and critical success, earning six Academy Award nominations.
