According to Deadline, Kiara Barnes (“The Bold and the Beautiful”) will star in the contemporary reboot of “Fantasy Island,” which is being developed by FOX.
The actress will play Ruby Okoro, a woman with a terminal illness who is given a new chance at life by the island and Elena Roarke (who is a direct descendant of Mr. Roarke, from the original series) .
Production is expected to begin in the North American summer of 2021.
The reboot is described as a “semi-anthology that will delve into hypothetical issues that keep us awake at night.” Each episode will tell a compelling story about people who start with a wish, but are reborn thanks to the magical realism of Fantasy Island ”.
The series is developed by the duo Liz Craft and Sarah Fain (“The 100”).
“We are particularly focused on providing viewers of series that provide a true escape from everyday life,” said Michael Thorn, president of entertainment at Fox Entertainment. “’Ilha da Fantasia’ is a beloved series and the universe created by Liz and Sarah in this adaptation is perfect for the times we live in today. Especially because, who wouldn’t want to take a (safe) trip to Fantasy Island? “
The original series, which aired between 1977 and 1984, ran for seven seasons on ABC. Earlier this year, Blumhouse kicked off a reboot of the film, starring Michael Peña, Maggie Q, and Lucy Hale, which grossed nearly $ 50 million worldwide.
