James Franco Remaking Cult Classic Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?


LOS ANGELES: Actor and filmmaker James Franco is slated to executive produce a remake of the TV movie Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? for Lifetime in honor of the cult classic’s 20th anniversary.

Sony Pictures Television, which produced the original, will collaborate with Rabbit Bandini Productions on the project. Franco came up with the story for the film, which is due out next year.

The original starred Tori Spelling as a young girl whose boyfriend may have been a murderer. Though it first aired on NBC, it gained cult status after repeated screenings on cable networks such as Lifetime.
