HBO Gives Chloe Sevigny the Ax … to Play ‘Lizzie Borden’


“Big Love” star Chloe Sevigny is taking a swing at a new HBO miniseries set around the 1892 hatchet murders of Andrew and Abby Borden. Sevigny has been cast in the role of the Borden’s daughter Lizzie, who was arrested for the crimes, but acquitted during trial.

Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman (Silence of the Lambs) will produce the four-part miniseries through their company Playtone. Sevigny is also serving as an executive producer on the project. Some douchy-looking guy named Bryce Kass is writing the script.

Sevigny will also be seen in Jonathon Caouette’s upcoming art-house thriller All Flowers in Time. Her creds include David Fincher’s Zodiac, Jonathan Liebesman’s The Killing Room, and Mary Harron’s big screen adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel American Psycho.
