Cynthia Nixon, Sarah Paulson And Sharon Stone To Star In Ryan Murphy's 'Ratched'

The 'American Horror Story' creator has announced a "true murderers' row of talent" set to star in his new Netflix series.

Ratched is based on the infamous One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest character, Nurse Ratched -- with the starring role to be played by Sarah Paulson.

Murphy has now announced ten iconic actors who will be joining Paulson, with shooting set to begin in a couple of weeks.

"On behalf of myself and Ms. Sarah Catharine Paulson who plays the title role and is also a big fancy producer on it, we are thrilled to announce our amazing cast... a true murderers’ row of talent," Murphy wrote on Instagram.

"So many of these actors are supremely talented folks who Sarah and I have both longed to work with," he wrote, before listing the "Ratched Principal Players".

Murphy revealed that Cynthia Nixon, Judy Davis, Amanda Plummer and Sharon Stone will lead the cast, along with Jon Jon Briones (AHS: Apocalypse), Charlie Carver (Teen Wolf),  Harriet Harris (Desperate Housewives) Finn Wittrock (The Assassination Of Gianni Versace), Hunter Parrish (Weeds) and Corey Stoll (House of Cards). 

"More to come, but come on... Sarah, Cynthia, Judy, Amanda and Sharon, all doing scenes together? I cannot WAIT," the showrunner wrote.

Ratched will be Murphy's first Netflix series, but the Pose creator is also working on a satirical series -- The Politician -- that will star Jessica Lange and Gwyneth Paltrow for the streaming service.
