‘Scissors’ Gathers Four More


On the heels of Gwyneth Paltrow being announced as Annette Bening‘s co-star three more names have been added to the cast of Ryan Murphy‘s Running with Scissors, an adaptation of Augusten Burroughs’ bestselling memoir.

The cast now includes Brian Cox, Joseph Cross, Evan Rachel Wood and Joseph Fiennes with production set to start March 7 in Los Angeles.

The film will be distributed by Sony’s TriStar Pictures and tells the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist who bore a striking resemblance to Santa Claus. So at the age of twelve, Burroughs found himself amidst Victorian squalor living with the doctor’s bizarre family, and befriending a pedophile who resided in the backyard shed. The story of an outlaw childhood where rules were unheard of, and the Christmas tree stayed up all year round, where Valium was consumed like candy, and if things got dull an electroshock- therapy machine could provide entertainment.
