As reported by Deadline, Netflix has give a straight-to-series, two season order to Ratched, a brand new drama collection from Ryan Murphy. The present goes to be a prequel to One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest that focuses on the prickly Nurse Ratched (performed by Oscar winner Louise Fletcher within the movie), with Sarah Paulson starring as Ratched herself. The story will start in 1947 and observe Ratched’s path from “nurse to full-fledged monster,” and it’ll “monitor her murderous development by means of the psychological well being care system.” That makes it sound a bit like Breaking Unhealthy, however with a kind of paper nurse hats as an alternative of a pork pie.
Ratched can be government produced by Murphy and unique Cuckoo’s Nest film producer Michael Douglas, and the script was written by a newcomer named Evan Romansky who got here up with the thought “contemporary out of movie faculty.” That script someway acquired to Murphy, who took it to Paulson, and the 2 of them then went about getting the rights to the Nurse Ratched character. Manufacturing is about to start sooner or later in mid-2018, with Murphy directing the premiere.
