She thinks she and her younger siblings have a summer of freedom, that is until she realises her mum has hired a babysitter, Mrs Sturak (who is secretly evil) to look after them.
The kids don’t get along with her, but in a sudden twist, Mrs Sturak dies and it’s up to Sue Ellen to take charge, looking after her younger brothers and sisters (which is way harder than it looks).
After Mrs Sturak’s death, the kids soon realise that she was in possession of all of their summer spending money and so must come up with a way to survive without their mum – or funds to live off.
At the time – almost 20 years ago – it was mega popular and became one of those classic Sunday afternoon movies.
For the remake, which will be set in present day, Treehouse’s Justin Nappi and Juliet Berman will produce, alongside Oren Segal.
Meanwhile Michael Phillips, Juliana Maio and Tova Laiter will serve as executive producers. Michael was actually an executive producer on the original, too.
“Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead is an iconic cult classic,” said Treehouse president Nappi. “We look forward to bringing audiences a new interpretation that is as funny and outrageous as the original but also smart and connected to the world today.”
While there’s currently no information about who will star or when production will begin, we’re hoping it’ll be released next year at the latest!
