Paulson will be filling the shoes of the legendary character first brought to life by Louise Fletcher back in 1975.

Ratched has gone down in the hall of fame as one of the most iconic antagonists of all time. She was a cold-hearted passive-agressive b*tch that everyone hated.

The series began filming in Los Angeles this week and Sarah has been seen rocking the amazing 1940s costumes.

The show will chronicle the Nurse Mildred Ratched’s monstrous behavior to her her patients inside a mental institution.

Paulson won’t be the only big name on set.  The cast features Cynthia Nixon, Rosanna Arquette, Don Cheadle and Sharon Stone.

Expect some big awards to come out of this show. After all, Ryan Murphy is the creator behind the project and the original movie adaption won Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher both Oscars for their roles.
