Lifetime’s upcoming Lizzie Borden biopic, starring Christina Ricci, has added two more to its cast.
TV Line reports that Billy Campbell (“The Killing”) and Clea Duvall (“American Horror Story: Asylum”) have come aboard to tell the tale of Borden, who infamously was tried and acquitted in the 1892 ax murders of her father and stepmother.
Campbell will appear as Andrew Jennings, Borden’s lawyer, while Duvall will take on the role of Borden’s sister, Emma.
Borden’s been quite the hot topic as of late. A competing project is in the works at HBO, with Chloe Sevigny attached to topline, and Duvall’s season of “AHS” touched on the Borden saga with the character of Grace (Lizzie Brochere), who murdered her family in a similar fashion.
Are you looking forward what is sure to be an insane take on the Borden tale from Lifetime?
