Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Chloe Sevigny is working on a project with HBO that will turn the story of accused murderer Lizzie Borden into a four-hour miniseries, reports Deadline.com.
Borden was acquitted in 1893 of killing her father and step-mother with a hatchet, but never escaped the image of being a murderer. Sevigny will play Borden and will co-executive produce the project, the story notes.
She’s working with Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s production company Playtone, where she already has a relationship through her role on "Big Love," the story notes. Sevigny received a Golden Globe in 2010 for her performance as sister wife Nicolette Grant on the HBO series.
She was nominated for an Oscar in 2000 for her supporting role in “Boys Don’t Cry.”
