ChloŽ Sevigny is Lizzie Borden in new HBO mini -series

For "Big Love" devotees, the thought of ChloŽ Sevigny hacking up people with a hatchet probably isn't too far-fetched.

The actress has played Nicolette Grant, the sister wife with sociopolitical tenancies, to simultaneously creepy and endearing perfection for five seasons. And just because the show is ending doesn't mean she's leaving HBO.

Deadline reports actress is currently developing a miniseries based on the life of Lizzie Borden with her "Big Love" bosses, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman at Playtone. Sevigny has been a driving force behind the miniseries, in which she'll star in the title role and serve as co-executive producer.

Borden, for those not familiar with the charming, explanatory limerick, was a Massachusetts spinster put on trial for killing her father and step-mother with a hatchet in 1892. She was acquitted, but almost everyone back then (and now) was pretty sure she did it.

... like a Victorian era O.J. Simpson, if you will.

Lizzie Borden had an axe, she gave her father 40 whacks, when she saw what she had done she gave her mother 41!

I never knew about this story until DAYS used it in the Salem Stalker. Which was another dropped plot line lol.

I read a book about Lizzie in the 90's....The book suggested her sister helped her.

Totally watching this! Anyone watched the TV movie w/Elizabeth Montgomery as Lizzie Borden and Katherine Helmond (Mona from "Who's the Boss?") as her sister?

EM was awesome as the entitled, bratty Lizzie Borden. I think this was one of her first role where she played against type and rocked it. She was creepy and demanding of her sister. KH was good as the submissive older sister.

The best part its that it'll be on HBO!
