Chloe Sevigny is setting up a mini-series at HBO about Lizzie Borden, who you probably don’t even really know too much about. Borden, of course, was the young woman accused of murdering her father and stepmother with a hatchet back in 1892, way before it was considered cool.
With “Big Love” wrapping up, Sevigny was eager to play another role that required unflattering dresses (It’s this whole thing. Ugh. You wouldn’t understand). So, she took the project to Playtone, the production company behind “Big Love” and introduced them to music video director Bryce Kass, who will write the four-hour series.
Now everyone is going to behead their parents with hatchets. You just KNOW they are. (Deadline)
