Trailer: Kristen Stewart & Chloe Sevigny's Lizzie Borden flick

Not that we really need yet another adaptation of this famous story, but today we have word that Saban Films and Roadside Attractions will be releasing Director Craig William Macneill's (THE BOY, CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE) new horror memoir based on the notorious Lizzie Borden in theaters this September.

Chloë Sevigny stars as Lizzie Borden and Kristen Stewart plays Borden's housemaid Bridget Sullivan. The film is called LIZZIE and in an interesting bit of history,  tomorrow marks the 126th year anniversary of the infamous 1892 axe murder of the Borden family in Fall River, Massachusetts. And today we have the film's trailer for you to check out.

Based on the true story, Academy Award nominee Chloë Sevigny stars as:

Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy (2015), “Channel Zero: Candle Cove”) explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.

Sevigny and Stewart are joined in the film by Jamey Sheridan, Fiona Shaw (HARRY POTTER), Kim Dickens (FEAR THE WALKING DEAD), Denis O’Hare (AMERICAN HORROR STORY), and Jeff Perry. Saban Films and Roadside Attractions will release LIZZIE in theaters September 14, 2018.

Extra Tidbit: Bet you Stewart's character (or at least most of her involvement) ends up being all inside Lizzie's head.
