Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange are set to revisit the bitter relationship between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in a new TV series from Ryan Murphy.
Feud will document famous fights between well-known personalities, and the first season of the series will detail the fall out between the two Hollywood icons on the set of their 1962 thriller What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
Sarandon will play Davis, opposite Lange as Crawford, reports TheWrap.com.
Other castmembers include Stanley Tucci as famed studio boss Jack Warner and Alfred Molina, who will portray director Robert Aldrich.

The show will be the American Horror Story and American Crime Story co-creator’s third anthology project for US cable network FX.
“Ryan keeps re-inventing TV,” says FX Networks CEO John Landgraf.
“The series will offer a seductive, insightful look at what lies behind legendary personality conflicts,” Landgraf said.
Brad Pitt will serve as an executive producer on the show, through his Plan B Entertainment company, while Murphy, Sarandon and Lange will also take on producing credits.
The series will reunite Pitt and Sarandon, 25 years after they co-starred in Thelma & Louise, which launched the 52-year-old actor’s career.
