As we told you this past summer, Lifetime signed Christina Ricci to star in its upcoming biopic about Lizzie Borden, and now we have more details and artwork for Lizzie Borden Took an Ax.
The film also stars Billy Campbell as Borden’s lawyer and Clea DuVall (Zodiac, Argo) as her sister. Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, directed by Nick Gomez (“Dexter,” “FlashForward,” “Burn Notice”), will premiere on Lifetime January 25th at 8:00 pm ET.
It’s not just a disturbing nursery rhyme! Now the true story of how Lizzie Borden murdered her parents (or did she?) in the summer of 1892 is being brought to Lifetime, with Christina Ricci as the eponymous Lizzie. The true-crime case captured national attention when it first happened, proving that Americans’ obsession with scandalous and sordid tales is nothing new.
