Amanda Knox - Amanda Knox Movie To Premiere On Lifetime Tonight

The AMANDA KNOX movie is set to premiere on the Lifetime network tonight (21st February 2011).

AMANDA KNOX, the American student sentenced to 26 years in prison for killing her roommate in Italy in 2007, will be portrayed by the Hollywood actress Hayden Panettiere in a television movie set to premiere tonight, reports USA Today. The highly controversial movie has been criticised by the family of Knox's victim, Meredith Kercher. Speaking about the difficulty of researching the part Panettiere said, "I spent five weeks reading testimony, finding new information and discussing the case. I watched videos of her with her friends and listened to the way she spoke". The 21-year-old actress revealed that Knox did request to speak with her but that she turned the offer down, saying, "She has only two days a week to talk to her family and have visitors, and it didn't seem right to monopolize her time". Kercher's family have accused the film of glamorising a tragedy but Panettiere says the movie is not supposed to be just another legal drama, adding, "It's also a mother, daughter story. The great thing about the movie is that you see the different sides of the story".

'Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy' airs at 9pm ET tonight and also stars Marcia Gay Harden as Knox's mother and Paulo Romio as Knox's boyfriend Raffaele Solleciuto.

Amanda Knox Felt Ill When She Saw Herself Portrayed in New Movie

The news report included disturbing clips from a movie trailer for the film, which includes a gritty portrayal of the murder of Knox's British roommate Meredith Kercher as well as sex scenes.

Knox's stepfather Chris Mellas told ABC News that in her weekly phone call home, Knox was emotional and said, "I was physically ill when I saw the images. I thought I was going to throw up."

Knox, who was 20 at the time of the murder, explained how strange it was to see a "girl who looked like her, dressed like her, playing her life," the stepfather said. Knox, who is now 23, fought back tears during the phone call, explaining her frustration with having no control over her life and how her life is being portrayed. Her family said she is not aware of the magnitude of the press surrounding her life, and that she avoids watching television and readings newspapers.

Knox's lawyers faxed, emailed and couriered Lifetime TV a formal complaint on Feb. 3. If Lifetime doesn't respond by Feb. 10, Knox's lawyers will take legal action, the complaint states.

The family of Amanda Knox tried to get Panettiere to meet with the imprisoned American before starring in the new Lifetime movie.

A trailer and images from a press screener for the Lifetime channel movie, which airs Feb. 21, debuted on the Internet this week and has upset both Knox's family as well as the family of Meredith Kercher, who Knox was convicted of killing on Nov. 1, 2007.

Video from the movie trailer indicates there are graphic scenes in the movie. One quick segment shows Kercher stripped down to her bra, pinned to the floor and screaming as she is groped by the men playing Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Guede, two men convicted along with Knox in the killing.

The trailer shows Knox, portrayed by Panettiere, in a steamy bed scene with Sollecito. At one point the Italian prosecutor states ominously, "Under the angel face, she is capable of anything."

Amanda Knox's stepfather, who visited with her in her Italian prison last week, said the family objects to the portrayal of Amanda in the movie.

"We, quite some time back, asked Hayden to visit Amanda, but they never got back to us after several conversations," Mellas said.

Mellas told "Good Morning America" today, "This thing with Lifetime, I think, is them doing nothing more than trying to make a buck. And it's disgusting. It's not appropriate to profit off other people's pain."

Amanda Knox's appeal of her Italian murder conviction received a significant boost today from independent DNA experts who said there was no DNA on the two most crucial pieces of evidence used to convict her.

Anonymous said...

The Italian court hearing Amanda Knox's murder trial heard closing argument today from discredited prosecutor Giuliano Mignini, one of several prosecutors expected to address the court. Mignini was convicted of prosecutorial misconduct in an unrelated case. The court imposed a 16-month suspended sentence.

Mignini has proved an embarrassment to the Italian legal system with his theatrics, from accusations of satanic sex rituals to relentless pursuit of defamation claims against those who criticize his prosecutions and the investigations underlying them. Journalists have protested his tactics to the Italian president, noting that Mignini has filed or threatened to file criminal defamation lawsuits against journalists who criticized his record. Mignini denies initiating the defamation cases although they appear to be closely associated with his office.

Knox herself is the subject of a defamation suit for having said the police abused her during her interrogation. Her parents were charged for repeating what their daughter said to a British newspaper. Amanda Knox's slander trial is scheduled for Nov. 15 and her parents' trial for Jan. 24, 2012. Some reports say Knox's and co-defendant Rafaelle Sollecito's attorneys are also being investigated for slander.

With the DNA evidence that convicted Knox of murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher likely worthless to the prosecution as a result of its rejection by court-appointed independent experts, Mignini continued his emotional pandering, crying slander by the experts, conspiracy by the defense lawyers and journalists. In his trademark hysteria-inducing style, he compared Knox and her lawyers Nazi propagandists. He tried to rouse up sentiment against Knox and Sollecito by referring to them as "kids from rich families" who prevented family-girl Kercher from living. In essence, Mignini wants Knox to serve 26 years in jail not because of anything she did but because of who he perceives her to be, a rich girl.

It's appalling that the court gives Mignini latitude to cast these aspersions against any criminal defendant without any evidence whatsoever to support them. He could (and should) instead focus on arguing facts supporting Amanda Knox's guilt…. if there were any, that is.

Closing arguments are expected to continue for another day, followed by a statement on behalf of murder victim Meredith Kercher's family. The defense will then make its own closing , followed by Knox's personal appeal to the court to overrule her conviction. The court is expected to make a decision on Knox's appeal in early October. If justice prevails, they'll release her from Mignini's prison.
