Without knowing how well it would do, Lifetime recently announced that it’s already developing the sequel to its movie based on the V.C. Andrews novel, “Flowers in the Attic,” premiering Saturday at 8/7c.
Executive producer Michele Weiss says that the sequel, based on Andrews’ novel “Petals on the Wind,” presented a whole set of challenges that they didn’t have on the first installment.
“What’s great about adapting ‘Flowers’ is that it’s so contained,” Weiss told TheWrap. “It really lends itself to an adaptation that way.”
“With ‘Petals,’ it’s kind of more out in the world,” she continued. “There’s a lot of storylines, it takes place over a longer period of time. So, one of the challenges for us is to contain that story in a contained timeframe and I think we’ve figured out how to do it. It’s going to be a revenge story. It’s going to be Cathy and Christopher 10 years older, trying to get along with their lives, also caught up in feelings of resentment and revenge on Corinne.”
