Modern Adaptation: Cruel Intentions

In 1999, Roger Kumble directed an adaptation of the novel set in modern day New York.

Released under the title Cruel Intentions, it had Sarah Michelle Gellar star as Kathryn Merteuil and Ryan Phillippe assume the role of Sebastian Valmont, with supporting roles from Reese Witherspoon as Annette Hargrove and Selma Blair as Cecile Caldwell.

Curiously enough, Swoosie Kurtz, who played Madame de Volanges in Frears' movie, had a cameo in this version.
