Christina Ricci to return to TV as Lizzie Borden

Christina Ricci and Clea Duvall are reprising their roles as the Borden sisters for a TV mini-series inspired by the actresses' hit drama Lizzie Borden Took an Ax.

The TV movie about suspected killer Lizzie Borden premiered on the Lifetime network in January (14) and became an instant hit, prompting executives to greenlight a follow-up series.

Ricci will return as Lizzie in the six-hour mini-series, titled Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles, while Duvall will play Emma Borden.

Lizzie Borden was controversially acquitted of the double murder of her father and stepmother in 1892.
