na na na na na naaaa naa…

the most bitterest of romantic comedies, “War of the Roses” is getting a sequel.

Warren Adler’s book “War of the Roses, The Children” is getting the cinematic treatment, says Deadline, with the children of the characters played by Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner in the 1989 movie now wanting to, well, smash each other’s faces in.

Here, the chandelier-shattering legacy of Barbara and Oliver Rose is passed down to their children, Josh and Evie, in a black comedy that focuses on ugly divorce from the vantage point of kids who fall victim to warring parents. Josh marries Victoria, only to see the marriage fall apart over an incident involving missing Milky Way bars; and Evie is a promiscuous over-eater carrying her own shrapnel. The result is deceit, violence and destruction. Permut will produce with Grey Eagle Films, Jonathan Adler and Stephen Greenwald. Chris Mangano will be exec producers. Grey Eagle Films got the film and TV rights to all of Adler’s novels, and newly monied Permut Presentations is financing development, and is currently seeking a scribe.

Permut said the film “will explore, with comedic irony, the underbelly of a troubled family which, in this new scenario has produced a serial adulterer, a gluttonous gourmand, the protective mother-in law and grandchildren who are deeply impacted by the generational dysfunction.

Assumingly, the film will be free of Douglas, Turner and Danny DeVito (who also directed), and play as its own beast.
