If you grew up in the 80s, there’s probably a good chance that your parents had a copy of Flowers in the Attic lying around your house somewhere. It’s kind of like the 50 Shades of Grey of the era, in that even people that didn’t regularly read had a copy of Virginia Andrews novel because, I mean, everyone wanted to read the parts about the brother and sister f**king, right? (Maybe it’s because from Arkansas).
Anyway, Lifetime is making another movie out of the book, which is about four siblings whose father tragically dies. The mother, however, locks the kids away in the attic, remarries another man who doesn’t even know she has kids, wants to kill the kids for the inheritance, and oh yeah! The older brother and older sister locked away in the attic end up falling in love, and having the sex.
So, I’m sure you’re curious about who will be playing the principal roles. Well, Heather Graham is going to play the mom/slash widow/evil woman.
Ellen Burstyn will play the grandmother, who is also a horrible person.
I don’t know who he is, but Mason Dye (The Secret Diary of an American Cheerleader) will be playing the older brother.
And who will be playing the brother f*cker? “Mad Men’s” Sally Draper, Kiernan Shipka. She is still only 14 years old, people, so, uh, don’t go there.
