Death Becomes Her revived on TV under film's director Robert Zemeckis and Bravo
The 1992 comedy scripted by Martin Donovan and David Koepp, which starred Bruce Willis, Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn, is set for a TV adaptation with Zemeckis executive producing alongside Jack Rapke and Jackie Levine.
Variety reports that Universal Cable Productions and Lupara productions are producing the TV version and there's no writer on board as yet.
Death Becomes Her starred Streep as Madeline, an actress who steals plastic surgeon Ernest (Willis) away from Helen (Hawn). Years later, Helen's aging, her career's struggling and she's suffered a breakdown which landed her in a mental hospital. She's stunned to come across an ever-young Helen who's aiming to snag back the love of her life, who's now doing makeovers for the dead. However, with the aid of a New Age mystic played by Isabella Rossellini, Madeline doses up with a youth potion and is ready to get back in the game of outdoing Helen, who's also running on the same juice. Helen in the meantime is working her magic on Ernest, convincing him to off Madeline and rekindle their romance, and setting the stage for some literally head-turning scenes.
