The new Nick Gomez helmed Lifetime biopic ‘Lizzie Borden Took an Ax’ is just over a month away from making its premiere on the network. Christina Ricci (‘Bel Ami’) stars in the true crime title role as Lizzie Borden, the 19th Century hatchet murder supect whose case was clouded in controversy when she was finally acquitted as an innocent woman. And in spite of the fact that here in the UK we’re unable to view this new trailer at this time hopefully the lucky residents of the US will be able to enjoy the brief new teaser from Lifetime. Clea DuVall (‘The Grudge’), Billy Campbell, Jennifer Kydd, John Maclaren, Andria Wilson and Brett Donahue all star alongside Ricci. Head below for the trailer.
“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.”
‘Lizzie Borden Took an Ax’ premieres on Lifetime 25 January at 8:00pm ET.
