While Sevigny will play Borden, Stewart is attached to essay the role of Bordens’ live-in maid Bridget Sullivan, who might have been in the home when the murders were committed. She testified at the trial for the murders which ultimately resulted in Borden’s acquittal, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

The crime inspired children’s rhymes sung to the tune of the then-popular song “Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay”. The case also spawned several theories about who committed the murders and why. One of the theories suggested that Borden and Sullivan were lovers.

Pieter Van Hees will direct the psychological thriller, which is slated to release in 2017.
