As being reported by The Times, Fatal Attraction, the 1987 thriller starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, is to make a comeback as a stage play, hopefully debuting in London's West End by the end of the year.

Based on the story of a man who has an ill-advised weekend fling, Fatal Attraction was the second grossing movie in the year of its release. Famous for putting a generation of men off the idea of adultery, it is also created the term 'bunny boiler', after Glenn Close's character infamously uses a pet rabbit to get back at Douglas after his rejection of her.

Whilst not sounding like the most fun night out one could have at the theatre, at least there is some weight to this project, as original screenplay writer James Dearden is adapting his story for the stage. Although no casting news has been revealed, Dearden told The Sunday Times that the film's most notorious scene, involving the poor rabbit, would still feature, otherwise "without it the audience might demand their money back."

However, the story is expected to be modernised and less violent than the film version with the ending also under discussion: Dearden has hinted that the female protagonist Alex is likely to survive at the end (which will probably please Glenn Close, who always disliked her character's violent demise).

Remind yourselves again below why having an affair is a pretty bad idea...
