Diane Lane, Calista Flockhart, and Tom Hollander to Star in Feud Season 2

This is one battle we do not want to lose.

Diane Lane, Tom Hollander and Calista Flockhart are scheduled to appear in the second season of Ryan Murphy’s FX series Feud known as Capote’s Women According to Deadline. Hollander will portray Truman Capote, the man who is at the heart of this conflict, with Lane and Flockhart acting as Lee Radziwill and Slim Keith respectively.

The deadline had previously revealed Naomi Watts and Chloe Sevigny will be starring in the series as Socialites Barbara “Babe” Paley and C.Z. Guest.

Murphy initially planned to tell the story of Prince Charles as well as Princess Diana’s ugly divorce during the third season of Feud.

In the year 2017 Murphy disclosed the plans to E! News and revealed that the series that was canceled will be filmed entirely in England. “It’s going to be a very international cast,” the actor said. “I’m just starting to meet with people. If you have a British accent, that helps you on this show.”

The following year, FX chief John Landgraf denied that the season two plot was abandoned due to The Crown, the Netflix Crown series The Crown, explaining that The two shows would have differed in terms of scope. “I happen to really like The Crown. But it’s told from the point of view of the royal family,” Landgraf stated to Entertainment Weekly in 2018. “This is shown from the perspective of someone who is a member of that family, a la Meghan Markle. We couldn’t bring the story to the quality we desired.

However, the decision to cancel Feud: Diana and Charles allowed Murphy the chance to concentrate on other projects, such as The Prom, American Crime Story: Impeachment and many more. In addition Murphy along with Brad Falchuk previously announced they are working on two additional anthology series: American Love Story and American Sports Story. Fans needn’t worry, there’s lots of new material coming to us!

The second season of the collection is based on the book Laurence Leamer Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and Swan Song for an Era. Leamer’s book chronicled the rise of Capote to fame as well as his relationships with a circle made up of New York City socialites, whom he affectionately called the “swans.” The women’s friendships were strained when the author divulged intimate details about their lives in an unfinished portion of his work Answered Prayers, which was published by Esquire in 1975.
