Some odd news courtesy Variety. Bravo is breathing life into “Death Becomes Her.” Twenty years after the theatrical debut of the film, Bravo and the pic’s helmer, Robert Zemeckis, have begun eyeing a smallscreen adaptation. Zemeckis is on board to exec produce the hourlong drama project along with Jack Rapke and Jackie Levine, though a writer has yet to be tapped. The TV version of “Death Becomes Her” will be produced by Universal Cable Prods. and Lupara Prods. Universal released the film in 1992 and, by airing on Bravo, the cable adaptation will remain in the NBCUniversal family. “Death Becomes Her” centers on two rival women who both attain eternal youth. Pic, starring Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn and Bruce Willis, earned $58 million Stateside and $149 million globally. Good to know Zemeckis is on board again, but I doubt we should be expecting to see Meryl being a part of it. Thanks to everybody for the heads-up!
