HBO fears Lizzy Borden

Lizzie Borden took an axe. And gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one. One of America’s favorite kiddie rhymes based off of the infamous New England murders in the early 1890s, will soon be a miniseries for HBO.

Deadline is reporting Bryce Kass is writing the script and yummy Chloe Sevigny (American Psycho and HBO’s Big Love) will star as Lizzy Borden.

Can you picture this…

…as this?

  1. Maybe she’ll go ugly like Charlize Theron in Monster…

  2. Anyone here remember the late Elizabeth Montgomery playing the role in a 70’s tv MOTW?

    She creeped me the hell out!

  3. Great casting. Chloe is a great choice for an axe-murdering maniac.

  4. Wonder how they’ll treat the story? I think Chloe is too pretty for Lizzy, but we will see.
