Demi Moore is in talks for Season 2 of Ryan Murphy’s FX series ‘Feud’
Demi Moore is in talks to join the cast of Feud: Capote’s Women , the second installment of FX’s anthology series from Ryan Murphy and Plan B, sources tell Deadline. Representatives for FX and 20th Television, which is behind the Feud franchise, declined comment.
If the deal goes through, Moore will join Tom Hollander, who stars as Capote, Calista Flockhart, Diane Lane, Naomi Watts and Chloe Sevigny in the cast.
Adapted from Lawrence Leamer’s book Capote’s Woman: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era, the miniseries is set in the 1970s and ends with Truman Capote’s death in 1984. It describes the story of a famous scholar. Author while stabbing several of his female friends – whom he called “swans” – by publishing a Roman à Cliff short story in Esquire in 1975 called “La Côte Basque 1965”. The episode was intended to be a chapter in Capote’s infamous unfinished novel Answers to Prayer, his follow-up to the blockbuster In Cold Blood.
Two-time Oscar nominee Gus Van Sant will direct all eight episodes, with Tony- and Pulitzer-nominated John Robin Betz writing all episodes and serving as showrunner.
Baitz, Van Sant and Watts are executive producing Feud: Capote’s Women along with Murphy, Plan B’s Dede Gardner, Tim Minar and Alexis Martin Woodall — who created/produced Season 1 as Feud: Bette and Joan. 20th Television is a studio with Plan B Entertainment and Ryan Murphy Productions. Filming is set to begin in New York this fall.
On the film side, Moore will next be seen in The Substance, directed by Revenge helmer Coralie Farget. She recently voiced a role in QCode’s podcast Dirty Diana, which is being adapted into an Amazon series in which Moore will executive produce and star. She was recently seen in the feature Please Baby Please, which opened the 2022 Rotterdam Film Festival.
