Seventeen years after she first played the wonderfully conniving Kathryn Merteuil, Sarah Michelle Gellar is set to reprise her iconic role in a TV reboot of 1999's "Cruel Intentions."
Yes, this is actually happening. Gellar is going all in, which means transforming herself into a brunette and becoming the "Marcia fucking Brady of the Upper East Side" once more.
Last week, the former "Buffy" star debuted her newly dyed tresses on Instagram, writing, "#brownhairdontcare (actually I kind of love it!!)"
A pilot for the reboot was picked up in early February and Gellar signed on a few weeks later. According to Deadline, the TV reboot picks up 15 years after the movie left off and sees Gellar's character vying for control of her family's company and attempting to corrupt the son of her late brother Sebastian Valmont (played by Ryan Phillippe in the movie), who apparently got Reese Witherspoon's character pregnant before he died.
Gellar's involvement in the project is not that surprising given that she's remained close with the film's writer-director Roger Kumble, who is also behind the reboot.
Last May, Gellar reunited with former co-stars Witherspoon and Selma Blair to take in a showing of "Cruel Intentions: The Unauthorized Musical Parody," and they ended up recreating the film's famous lip-lock for the cameras.
