James Dearden seems to have lost the “Fatal Attraction” after all.

The screenwriter has put up his Beverly Hills home for sale at $5.2 million, well below the initial asking of $6.8 million, Variety reported. In case that doesn’t work, Dearden is also listing the property as a fully-furnished, luxury rental asking $25,000 per month.

Located above Benedict Canyon, the 5,290-square-foot European-styled villa on Trudy Drive has five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Amenities at the two-story home include a library, media lounge with surround sound system, two dishwashers (why not?) and a swimming pool.

Dearden purchased the home in 2007 for less than $4.7 million, property records show. Since then, it’s been leased to glitzy A-listers including an NBA player and a Swedish House Mafia member.

Paul Czako of Gussman Czako Estates has the listing.

The English film writer and director made a name for himself with “Fatal Attraction,” an Oscar-nominated film starring Michael Douglas and Anne Archer. His credits also appear on “Rogue Trader,” “A Kiss Before Dying” and “Pascali’s Island.” Dearden and his wife, British actress Annabel Brooks, also own a walk-up apartment in New York City and a property in London’s Notting Hill neighborhood.
