Film coming based on famed axe-murderer Lizzie Borden

I suppose you could say I've got a special interest in famed serial murderer Lizzie Borden, considering her house is less than 20 minutes away from me! Needless to say I've always been intrigued by the young girl's tale... and now we get to see it unfold on screen!

Alright I'm sure there's been Lizzie Borden flicks done in the past, but hell none come to mind so let's run with this! There's news spreading across the net today on a flick called LIZZIE which is, you guessed it, about Lizzie Borden! Described as a 'psychological thriller,' LIZZIE comes from director David Dunn Jr and producers Matthew Mosher and Leif Holt. Holt also penned the script with Marielle Seastrom. Check out the detailed synopsis:

On August 4th, 1892, Andrew Jackson Borden and Abby Durfee Borden were brutally murdered with an old household hatchet. The blows of the murder weapon were so violent and numerous that their faces and skulls were unrecognizably disfigured. Although acquitted, it is common knowledge that the daughter, Lizzie Borden, is responsible for this savage evil act.

The present day Lizzy Allen suffers from an extreme case of childhood amnesia which not only lays dark her childhood memories but also her relationship or lack there of, of her parents themselves.When Lizzie discovers the news of her father’s death she inherits the house she once lived in...and therefore a new place to live.

But as she begins to settle in she starts to get a glimpse of her childhood memories along with clues as to what really happened in the Borden household in 1892. We follow Lizzy’s journey as she attempts to distinguish between the two and strives to reach her own sanity and happiness while doing so...

Sounds good to me! So who'll be playing the axe wielding maniac? Why the gorgeous Amanda Baker (below)! Joining Baker in LIZZIE will be Leif Holt, Corbin Bernson, Shawna Waldren, Gerry Bednob, Caitlin Carmichael, Don Swayze, Brianna Johnson, Danielle Kennedy, Eric Fisher, Cindy Baer and Gary Busey. That's right folks, Gary 'f*ckin' Busey as 'Old Man.' Alright I'm completely sold.

Unfortunately that's all we've got for LIZZIE as of right now. For more info you can go ahead and click around on the official website but be sure to keep it here for more on LIZZIE as we hear it!
