No, she won’t bother to cry. Carrie Underwood‘s hit “Two Black Cadillacs,” the twisted revenge tale from 2012′s Blown Away, is coming to the small screen in the form of a six-hour limited TV series. While the script is written by Ildy Modrovich, ("CSI: Miami," "Necessary Roughness," "Eleventh Hour") Underwood will sit in the executive producer chair, alongside Jerry Bruckheimer ("CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl). It will be broadcast on FOX, as Deadline originally reports.
In the original song, co-written by Underwood, Hillary Lindsey (Dierks Bentley’s “Bourbon In Kentucky,” Underwood’s “See You Again”) and Josh Kear (Underwood’s “Blown Away” and “Before He Cheats”), two women (a wife and a mistress) are deceived by their lover into believing they are the only one for him. As it turns out, both have a dark side, and they seek revenge (through the supernatural ways) once they learn of his betrayal. The forthcoming production will be set “in the modern South,” the site states.
In the song’s official video, a demonic force aids the women in covering up the gruesome murder. There is no word on what part this will play in the TV adaptation, although glimmers of the 1983 cult classic film Christine (written by Stephen King and directed by John Carpenter) are certainly plausible. Underwood has long been known as a fan of horror films, so expect an even darker edge to the script.
