Paramount+ announced that Amanda Peet has joined the cast of its upcoming ‘Fatal Attraction’ series. Peet joins previously announced series stars Lizzy Caplan and Joshua Jackson. The streaming service first announced the series on Nov. 11 with Caplan attached to the project, with Jackson being announced on Jan. 20.
Peet will portray Beth Gallagher, the role played by Anne Archer in the 1987 movie. When Beth’s husband, Dan (Jackson) has an affair with Alex (Caplan), Alex terrorizes their family. The 1987 movie Fatal Attraction was a huge box office hit and led to Oscar nominations for Archer, Glenn Close as Alex, director Adrian Lyne and Best Picture.
Paramount+ has said that their 2022 version of Fatal Attraction will delve further into the causes of Alex’s obsession and issues including “strong women, personality disorders and coercive control.” As of press time, Paramount+ has not announced a start of production or airdate for Fatal Attraction.
