Sarah Paulson, frequent Ryan Murphy collaborator, is teaming up with the producer once again for his upcoming FX anthology series “Feud.”
Murphy announced via Twitter Tuesday that Paulson is set to play Geraldine Page, the Oscar-winning actress who received a golden statue for her role in 1985’s “The Trip to Bountiful.”
“Feud” will tell the story of the infamous rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, which took place while they were filming the 1962 horror film “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” Fellow “American Horror Story” alum Jessica Lange has signed on to star as Crawford, with Susan Sarandon playing Davis.
Other actors attached to the star-studded project include Alfred Molina, who will play director Robert Aldrich, Stanley Tucci as Jack Warner and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland.
The pilot will be based on a script Murphy purchased called “Best Actress,” written by Jaffe Cohen and Michael Zam, The Hollywood Reporter notes. The “Glee” creator will act as executive producer for the drama alongside Plan B Entertainment’s Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner.
Filming for “Feud” will reportedly begin this fall, with a premiere set for sometime in 2017 on FX.
