Glenn Close had hoped to make erotic thriller Therese Raquin her follow-up to the Oscar-nominated Albert Nobbs (Glenn Close, so into movie titles that are full names!) but now that she’s dropped out, what other forbidding basic-cable villainess will take her place? EW reports that American Horror Story star Jessica Lange has now come on board the Emile Zola adaptation, where she’ll play aunt to Elizabeth Olsen’s Therese, who’s cheating on husband Tom Felton with his best friend Oscar Isaac. Oh, you like all those people!
