Alfred Molina, Stanley Tucci, Judy Davis, and Dominic Burgess are set to also star on the new series, which will uncover the backstage drama behind the movie “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” according to an FX press release on Thursday.
“Feud” will begin production this fall and will air in 2017.
Molina plays the film’s director Robert Aldrich, Tucci was cast as studio titan Jack Warner, Davis as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, and Burgess as Crawford and Davis’ costar Victor Buono.
In addition to Murphy, Brad Pitt will executive produce. Murphy will also direct several episodes. Lange and Sarandon will also serve as producers.
