Joan Collins in Final Talks to Star on ‘American Horror Story’ Season 8!!!

Ryan Murphy is working on snagging a new legend for “American Horror Story”: Joan Collins.

Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter in a story published Wednesday that he’s “throwing in Joan Collins” for the upcoming eighth season of the FX anthology series. But TheWrap has learned that announcement was premature, as the actress is currently in “final talks” to move into a leading role in Murphy land.

“The fact of the matter is right now they are still in negotiations and I don’t know what more I could say to that,” Collins’ rep Jeffrey Lane told TheWrap Wednesday. Lane said that he can’t speak to why Murphy revealed the unconfirmed casting news in the interview.

If Collins signs on, she will be in good company for Season 8.

Last month, news broke that Kathy Bates would be returning for the upcoming season as a lead alongside Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.

Both Paulson and Peters starred in the last installment, “Cult,” but Bates took a year off after “Roanoke,” the franchise’s sixth season.

Murphy also mentioned to THR he is “interested” in Anjelica Huston. A representative for Huston did not immediately respond to an email from TheWrap requesting comment on her possible involvement in Season 8.
