Netflix Show "Ratched" Is Casting Military Types
Netflix is creating a series called "Ratched" that will be a prequel to the Academy Award-winning movie, "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." The original story is about a man who fakes mental illness after being arrested to avoid going to prison. Now, the prequel will focus on Nurse Ratched from the original story. The star of the prequel will be played by "American Horror Story" actress Sarah Paulson. The Netflix series will be produced by Michael Douglas and Ryan Murphy. Aside from Sarah Paulson, the show will also feature Sharon Stone, Judy Davis, Don Cheadle, Cynthia Nixon, Rosanna Arquette and Vincent D'Onofrio.
