20 Cult Favorite Movies That Were Supposed To Be TV Shows First
Cruel Intentions 2
When you get Amy Adams for your pilot, you make sure it gets seen. The direct-to-video sequel we know and love to hate, Cruel Intentions 2: Manchester Prep was developed and shot as a TV pilot for a show called Manchester Prep, but the show wasn’t picked up by any networks (for reasons obvious to anyone who’s seen this sleazy masterpiece). Screen Crush reveals the first sequel to Cruel Intentions is just repurposed material from that failed TV pilot, but it’s really only important as one of Amy’s earliest roles. The future Academy Award nominee took over Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s role.
