Mother Sleep With Danger Remake

Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? Redo Coming, Tori Spelling May Play Mom

Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? awakens.

To mark the upcoming 20th anniversary of the famously and awfully titled TV-movie that starred Tori Spelling as a teen with questionable taste in boyfriends, Lifetime is developing a remake, it was announced Monday.

“[This] retelling of the cult classic from Sony Pictures Television will pay homage to the original film that continues to resonate in pop culture today,” reads the press release from Lifetime/Sony.

Fun fact No. 1. That ever-industrious Swiss Army Knife known as James Franco is reportedly helping shepherd the project.

Fun fact No. 2: Per Vulture, which first reported on the remake, Spelling reportedly will again appear on-screen — likely as the mother (played in the 1996 original by Lisa Banes).

Would you tune in for fresh Danger? And who would you cast to succeed Spelling and Ivan Sergei as the young lovebirds?

    This movie was on this morning while I was getting ready for work. And is there anything James Franco doesn’t do these days?

    The original makes me smile. I can’t wait for the remake!

    I totally remember this movie. But if I’m being honest, and I can’t actually believe I have a preference in the 90s-Lifetime-movies-about-teens-with-murderous-boyfriends genre, I prefer the Candace Cameron/Fred Savage one. Seriously, Kevin Arnold dumped DJ Tanner’s body in a lake, and I think it was based on a true story, too.

    I’ve watched the B.H. 90210 and Full House unauthorized stories and will watch Saved by the Bell too.
    So I’d watch some of the others, especially Charmed.
    Twice Shannon was botted from an Aaron Spelling show.

  5. Ace says:

    This would be great, but Tori should not be included in the project. She is the absolure worst!

    Aw, I didn’t know Ivan Sergei was in this movie. I loved him in Charmed and Jack & Jill
