Lifetime has ordered a TV movie adaptation of V.C. Andrews' "Flowers in the Attic," which will star Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn, The Wrap reports.

Graham will play the recently widowed Corrine, who takes her four children (Chris, Cathy, Cory and Carrie) to stay with her parents at their mansion in Virginia. Because of a dark family secret, Corrine's mother, Olivia (Burstyn) insists that the four children must be kept locked in the attic where their grandfather won't see them, leaving them to care for themselves after Corrine's visits become increasingly infrequent. After years trapped alone together, the eldest children, Chris and Cathy, start taking a page out of Cersei and Jaime Lannister's playbook, if you know what we mean ...

The TV movie will be executive produced by Merideth Finn ("The Rite"), Michele Weiss ("Little Children") and Charles W. Fries ("Screamers"), Deborah Chow ("The High Cost of Living") is directing the script by "Up All Night's" Kayla Alpert.

Graham is best known for her film work, including "Boogie Nights," "The Hangover" and "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me," and will guest star in the upcoming season of "Californication" as a woman who has a history with Hank. Oscar winner Burstyn was last seen in USA's shortlived "Political Animals."
