The upcoming reboot is reportedly set to take place in Washington, D.C, and will come from writers Phoebe Fisher and Sara Goodman. According to Deadline, the new version of the film will still be based on the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Choderlos de Laclos, and will still feature two step-siblings who are ruthless in their attempts to remain atop their social circle. However, things take a turn from there.

According to the report, the reboot will focus on the hierarchy found in Greek life at an elite Washington, D.C. college. “After a brutal hazing incident threatens the entire Panhellenic system, they’ll do whatever’s necessary to preserve their power and reputations — even seduce the daughter of the Vice President of the United States,” reads the description from Deadline.

This isn’t the first time that a studio has attempted to bring back the young adult franchise, with a variety of reboots and reunions planned that eventually, all fell through. Currently, no casting choices or release information has been revealed. The original Cruel Intentions was released in 1999, and starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon, and Selma Blair.
