Ryan Murphy has announced the cast for his upcoming Netflix series “Nurse Ratched” which serves as a prequel to “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”. Netflix ordered 18 episodes (across 2 seasons) last year and filming begins in a couple of weeks. Sarah Paulson will play the titular Nurse Ratched and, according to Variety, the series will see her as she morphs from an average nurse into the monstrous authority figure she became in the Ken Kesey novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”.
Other cast includes: Sharon Stone, Finn Wittrock, Jon Jon Briones, Charlie Carver, Judy Davis, Harriet Harris, Cynthia Nixon, Hunter Parrish, Amanda Plummer, and Corey Stoll.
