Erin Cressida Wilson developing an Indecent Proposal remake
Writer Erin Cressida Wilson (The Girl on the Train, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) has been brought onboard to pen the script for the upcoming remake of the 1993 romance drama Indecent Proposal for Paramount Players, Collider has confirmed.
The original 1993 Indecent Proposal starred Robert Redford, Demi Moore, and Woody Harrelson and was directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction, Flashdance, Jacob’s Ladder). In the movie, a billionaire (Redford) offers $1,000,000 to a young married couple (Moore, Harrelson) for one night with the wife, ultimately wreaking havoc on the couple’s relationship. The film ended up earning $266 million worldwide becoming a hit at the box office but would also go on to win the 1993 “Razzie” for Worst Picture.
The movie was based on the Jack Engelhard novel of the same name that was published in 1988. The official description of the book is as follows: “In Atlantic City, after watching a major player lose and win back millions at the blackjack table, Joshua Kane and his wife Joan are offered a devil’s deal: this man will give Joshua one million dollars and the promise of a better life — in exchange for one night with Joan.”
The Indecent Proposal remake is still in the early stages as Paramount Players seeks out a director and its cast. In the meantime, the premise of the story asks an intriguing question: Would you agree to that devil’s deal?
