Rumours has it, that two of our favourite actresses are set to star in a new film about the life Lizzie Borden.
Lizzie Borden was famously tried and eventually cleared of brutally killing her father and step-mother with an axe in 1892. No one else was ever charged.
According to report Kristen Stewart and Chloe Sevigny have signed on to the as-yet untitled psychological thriller, directed by Pieter Van Hees, with Sevigny taking on the part of Borden.
Reports suggest Stewart will play Bridget Sullivan, the Borden family’s live-in maid, who some believe was in a relationship with Lizzie.
Borden’s trial was the subject of much public interest and speculation long after her acquittal, and the deaths of her father and stepmother are remembered as one of the most mysterious murders of all time.
Van Hees’ version is the latest in a long list of film and TV adaptations, most recently starring Christina Ricci as Borden.
