In the world of true crime, fewer are more infamous than Lizzie Borden, the prime suspect in the axe murders of her father and stepmother. The upcoming film, Lizzie, aims to tell the story of what happened to a modern audience. The film stars Chloë Sevigny as Ms. Borden and Kristen Stewart as Bridget Sullivan, Lizzie’s confidant and maid to the Borden family. The cast is impressive all-around, with supporting roles played by Kim Dickens, Fiona Shaw, and Denis O’Hare. The trailer for the film highlights Lizzie’s troubled relationship with her parents and the particularities of the Borden family, and it’s clear that the film is not interested in shying away from intense territory!
Announced in Cannes today, Craig William Macneill (The Boy) will be directing the upcoming psychological thriller Lizzie Borden. Based on the infamous murders, Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart will star in the film.
The story will follow the events that led up to the murders, with Sevigny starring as Borden, and Stewart as the young maid Bridget whom she befriends. Borden was acquitted of the 1892 murders of her father and stepmother. No one else was charged. Bryce Kass wrote the script for the film, which will be produced by Naomi Despres. read more
