Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Javier Bardem and Chloë Sevigny are set to play murder victims Jose and Kitty Menendez in the next installment of Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan's Monster anthology series.

Monsters: The Lyle and Erik Menendez Story is set to premiere on Netflix this year.

Nicholas Alexander Chavez from General Hospital and Cooper Koch from They/Them have signed on to play homicidal siblings Lyle Menendez and Erik Menendez in the series.

In 1989, 18-year-old Erik and 21-year-old Lyle -- known collectively as "the Menendez brothers" -- shot their parents to death in Beverly Hills.

The siblings were arrested in March and, in 1996, both were convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
