American Horror Story season 7 casts Sarah Paulson&Evan Peters

(EW)-The first details about the seventh edition of American Horror Story are being revealed.

The next edition of the hit horror anthology is adding two very familiar names: Emmy-winning actress Sarah Paulson and her fellow AHS franchise veteran Evan Peters are both on board, executive producer Ryan Murphy told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena, California after a panel for the upcoming limited series Feud.

The next cycle will also be set in modern times, he said.

The revelations came after Murphy was asked if the upcoming season will keep its subject matter a mystery — like FX did with last year’s Roanoke.

“There are only three people in the world who know what [the new season is about],” executive producer Ryan Murphy teased on Thursday. “And that’s FX CEO John Landgraf, [studio executive] Dana Walden, and Sarah Paulson.” (Excluding himself, obviously.) “I don’t know [if we’ll keep it quiet]. Last year was successful. I don’t know if we’ll do it again. I think maybe we’ll release some of it earlier than we did. But I just started writing it, I haven’t even cast it yet — except for Sarah and Evan. It’s a modern-day story. That’s all I can say.”

Sarah Paulson Joins Danny Strong’s J.D. Salinger Movie ‘Rebel In The Rye’

Sarah Paulson, the scene stealer in The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story where she brilliantly played prosecutor Marcia Clark, has joined Danny Strong’s J.D. Salinger biopic Rebel In The Rye. Paulson will play Dorothy Olding, the fiercely loyal agent who believed in the young Salinger from his earliest short stories and supported him throughout his career.

She joins Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road), Kevin Spacey, Brian D’Arcy James (Spotlight, Mozart In The Jungle), Victor Garber (Sicario, Milk) and Hope Davis in the cast. Rebel In The Rye is written and will be directed by Strong from an adaptation of Kenneth Slawenski’s biography, J.D. Salinger: A Life. The film follows the legendary and secretive author through his life — from his rebellious youth to the the bloody front lines of World War II, experiencing great love and terrible loss, a life of rejection, his writing in the pages of The New Yorker, and the PTSD-fueled writer’s block that led to the birth of his iconic novel The Catcher In The Rye.

The film is financed by Black Label Media with Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill producing alongside Bruce Cohen (American Beauty), Jason Shuman, and Strong. The project goes before the cameras this week in New York.
