Never wed. No children. And kind of pissed about it.
You might think we’re describing Glenn Close‘s character Alex Forrest from 1987’s Fatal Attraction — which, actually would fit — but, in this case we’re highlighting the role she will be playing in the pilot for Amazon’s Sea Oak, reports ComingSoon.net.
She’s set to take on a character, Aunt Bernie, who isn’t too happy about how her life panned out. That life, is actually cut short, during a home invasion in the half-hour pilot, which is deemed a “mix of zombie drama and family revenge.” Oh, and, yes, it’s a comedy.
The thing is, with it being a story about the living dead, that’s not that last of her. According to the description, she doesn’t think it’s fair how she never experienced the better things in life, and she’s going to set that right even if it comes after death.
This is the ultimate “do-over” with the official synopses describing her character as “compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead, full of rage and determined to get the life she never had.”
Dating might be hard considering the effects of being zombified, but we will have to see how she fairs post-death.
You know we like a good zombie story, particularly a mix of genres.
George Saunders, author of Lincoln in the Bardo and 10th of December, is set to write the pilot for Amazon.
Close recently reprised her role as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard on Broadway, first premiering in 1993. This will be her first on-screen (not including her voice work on The Simpsons) TV role since guest starring on Louie in 2015.
