She's Back! Sarah Michelle Gellar Returning for Cruel Intentions Reboot
She'll reprise her role for the NBC series based in the 1999 film
Sarah Michelle Gellar is ready to be cruel all over again.
The actress announced that she will be returning for NBC’s Cruel Intentions, a reboot of the 1999 film that also starred Reese Witherspoon, Selma Blair and Ryan Phillippe as stepbrother to Gellar’s Kathryn Merteuil.
“#kathrynmerteuil is back!!! I am happy to say that I will be joining them (and @nbctv ) on the new #Crueltv” she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her with director Roger Kumble and executive producer Neal Moritz.
The series centers on teenager Bash Casey (Taylor John Smith), the son of the late Sebastian Valmont (played Phillippe in the film) and Annette Hargrove (Witherspoon in the film), EW previously reported.
Gellar’s character is up to her old scheming as she attempts to take control of Valmont International and bash. The film was an adaption of the classic French novel Les Liaisons dangereuses.
Cruel Intentions has been on Gellar’s mind lately, as cast of the movie reunited in Los Angeles last year to attend the opening of the parody Cruel Intentions: The Completely Unauthorized Musical.
