Lizzy CaplanStars in Paramount+’s remake of the cult movie. Fatal Attraction

Based on the movie of 1987, which starred Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, the streamer is knifing out a new twist on the scariest one-night stand in movie history.

For those who need a refresher—and a reminder to be very careful on those Tinder swipes—Dan Gallagher (Douglas) is a married man whose one-night stand, Alex Forrest (Close) switches from lover to stalker.

The streaming service is bringing on the Masters of Sex star for what is being described by Paramount+ as, “a deep-dive reimagining of the classic psychosexual thriller ’80s cultural touchstone, the new series will explore fatal attraction and the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity, through the lens of modern attitudes towards strong women, personality disorders and coercive control.”

Caplan is yet to cast her lead man. But one thing is sure: It will not be an easy breakup. She won’t let you turn your back when she streams.
