Watch: Lizzy Caplan Talks "Masters of Sex"

This is going to be hot. 

Lizzy Caplan is set to star in the Paramount+ remake of the cult film Fatal Attraction.

Based on the 1987 movie, 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 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. 

Lizzy Caplan's Best Looks

Caplan has played some rather determined female characters throughout her career, including in the second season of Castle Rock in the role of Annie Wilkes from the 1990 film Misery. Lizzy perfectly played out the notorious part originated by another legendary actress, Kathy Bates.

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.
