Elizabeth Olsen To Star in HBO Max Series Based on Axe Murderer Candy Montgomery

Elizabeth Olsen will be starring in HBO Max’s Love and Death, Variety is reporting.

The 32-year-old actress will take on the role of Candy Montgomery in the series from David E. Kelley, which will be executive produced by Nicole Kidman and Per Saari for Blossom Films and Scott Brown and Megan Creydt for Texas Monthly, as well as Matthew Tinker, Michael Klick and Helen Verno.

Love and Death is based on the true story of Texas housewife Candy Montgomery, who murdered her friend from church, Betty Gore, with an axe in 1980.

“This is a gripping story about the frustrations and desires of two women in a small town that culminates in a terrible act of violence. We are thrilled to be partnering with David, Lesli, Nicole, and Per and incredibly fortunate to have Elizabeth at the center of our story to bring out all the layers of Candy that make this story so unforgettable,” HBO Max’s Sarah Aubrey said in a statement.

Kevin Beggs, chairman of Lionsgate Television Group, added, “We cannot imagine a more perfect artist to play the leading role of Candy than Elizabeth Olsen. Her talent, charisma and energy can bewitch audiences like no other. We’re proud to be collaborating with a world-class creative team of Lesli, David and Nicole on this thrilling and intriguing series and to bring another exciting premium property to our partners at HBO Max.”

This other actress will also be playing Candy in a series for Hulu.

Elizabeth Olsen Almost Changed Her Name So She Wouldn't Be Associated With Her Famous Sisters

There was a time that Elizabeth Olsen almost went by Elizabeth Chase.

The 32-year-old WandaVision actress opened up to GlamourUK in a new interview about how she contemplated changing her name at the very beginning of her career as to not be associated with her famous twin sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

“I was 10 and I was curious about auditioning,” Elizabeth explained. “And I realized very quickly it wasn’t for me because I was missing my sports teams, my dance class and all the extracurricular activities at school. But during that time, I thought, ‘I don’t want to be associated with [Mary-Kate and Ashley],’ for some reason.”

The idea of the name change came around the same time when she understood what “nepotism was like inherently as a 10-year-old. I don’t know if I knew the word, but there is some sort of association of not earning something that I think bothered me at a very young age.”

Elizabeth continued, “It had to do with my own insecurities, but I was 10. So I don’t know how much I processed, but I did think, ‘I’m going to be Elizabeth Chase when I become an actress.’”

Previously, Elizabeth opened up about how she wanted to carve her own path in the industry and also recalled her earliest memories about visiting Mary-Kate and Ashley on the Full House set.

'WandaVision' Explains Why the Finale Will Leave Some Fans Disappointed

The final episode of WandaVision is premiering this Friday and the show’s director is opening up to tease what to expect.

There are so many unanswered questions that fans are hoping to have answered in episode 9. Fans also have lots of theories of what they think will happen, but director Matt Shankman is warning fans that some people might be disappointed.

“I hope that they feel like the journey was satisfying for them. I know there are so many theories out there; there will be a lot of people who will no doubt be disappointed by one theory or another,” Matt told Entertainment Weekly. “But we’re always telling this story about Wanda dealing with grief and learning how to accept that loss, and hopefully people will find that the finale is surprising but also satisfying, and that it feels inevitable because it’s the same story they’ve been watching the whole time.”

On the experience of directing WandaVision, he added, “The challenge as a director was unique. I’ll never have a job like this again. This was the job of a lifetime, to be able to draw on all of those different skillsets. But what does hold it all together is that it has a big heart. It’s a love story, it’s a story of loss, and I think that resonates even more in this crazy pandemic that we’re all trying to survive right now. I think we can all understand where Wanda’s coming from, so it helps it to resonate a little bit more.”

A second season of WandaVision is not happening as of right now, but we did find out where Wanda Maximoff will be seen next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

'WandaVision' Finale Will Have Longest Episode Length of the Season, New Report Claims

There is only one episode left in the acclaimed television series WandaVision and new details have been revealed about the finale.

One of the only complaints about the show is how short some of the episodes have been, with some of them having a run time of less than 30 minutes.

Episode 8 was the longest episode of the series so far with a runtime of 47 minutes and a new report claims that the ninth and final episode will be the longest one of the series.

ComicBook.com reports that the finale will click in right at 50 minutes, though that will include the credits. The source for the info is a Reddit user who previously leaked accurate info about runtime for other episodes.

Marvel execs and cast members have said that the series would be a “six-hour movie” and the nine episodes will bring the show to a total runtime of just under that benchmark.

See how fans reacted to that huge moment at the end of the eighth episode.
