There’s a TV Series Adaptation of 1990’s PACIFIC HEIGHTS in the Works–With a Gender Swap
In a lengthy spotlight on Morgan Creek published by Park Circus, the storied movie studio reveals that they are planning a TV series adaptation of 1990’s suspenseful thriller Pacific Heights–with a twist!
“Pacific Heights, originally starring Michael Keaton, Melanie Griffith, and Matthew Modine will make a return as an open-ended dramatic series with a surprising and cheeky gender role reversal.”
Obviously, this project is in its infancy, so not much else is known at this time. If it’s been a while, or if you’ve never experienced the unnerving tension of Pacific Heights, revisit the trailer and synopsis below.
Unmarried yuppies Patty (Melanie Griffith) and Drake (Matthew Modine) move into an expensive dream home in a high-end neighborhood in San Francisco. As they renovate the house, they look for a tenant for the first floor of their house. Carter Hayes (Michael Keaton) seems like a great fit at first, but it transpires that he is a con artist who plans to swindle them out of their real estate. As Hayes tries to drive them out of their own home, the couple must take drastic measures to fight back.
Pacific Heights was directed by John Schlesinger from a screenplay penned by Daniel Pyne.
