His salt-and-pepper hair was styled slick back over his head and he appeared to be taking a call as he enjoyed a break from filming.

Meanwhile, Lizzy wore a grey suit over a black button down top.

Her hair was styled into bouncy ringlets and a pair of stylish shades concealed her eyes.

She carried a packet of papers and water bottle as she stepped out.

Lizzy will be assuming the role of Alex, the same role Glenn Close took on in the iconic suspense film.

The original Fatal Attraction starred Michael Douglas as Dan Gallagher, a married man who is stalked and tormented by the woman (Close) he had a brief affair with. 

Amanda Peet has been cast as Beth Gallagher, Dan’s wife.

Fatal Attraction was met with critical acclaim and became a box office smash, raking in $320.1 million worldwide.

The flick was nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress for Close.

While speaking to Entertainment Weekly in June, Joshua claimed the new series would be ‘an even more emotionally intense version of the story’ that is updated to the present date.

‘That allows us to update some of the sexual politics of the [movie], and because we have eight hours to tell the story, it also allows us to delve much more deeply into that Glenn Close character and… give a richer sense of how that woman became [who she is], and why she did the things that she did,’ he explained. 

‘That movie is basically every man’s worst nightmare come to life, and our show is a nightmare. It is a nightmare for men.’
