When Fatal Attraction opened in theaters back in the fall of 1987, it was definitely a product of its time, alongside films like Wall Street, Lethal Weapon, and The Secret of My Success. While that timeliness made it a huge hit back then, it definitely made things interesting when producers decided to reboot it as a new series. Lizzy Caplan, who stars as the femme fatale on the new show, told us she was certainly familiar with the film, but she knew that the new series would have to be handled in a much different way to appeal to today’s viewers.
