This is going to be hot.
Lizzy Caplan is set to star in the Paramount+ remake of the cult film Fatal Attraction.
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 and '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's leading man has yet to be cast, but one thing is certain: She is not going to be easy to break up with. You won't dare turn your back on her when this streams.
She also is known for her role in the hit 2004 film Mean Girls where she played snarky teenager Janis Ian. Fans will note that she seems to play characters plotting evil schemes very well.
We can't wait to see her take a stab at this role!
