Lawyers for Amanda Knox, the American college student who was convicted along with her exboyfriend of murder in Italy, are seeking to halt Lifetime from producing a film about her trial. With appeals and other legal proceedings at work, her lawyers want to prevent any dramatic representation that could bias her channels of appeal. And even the father of the murder victim, who was a 21 British college student who shared the apartment with Knox, is reportedly "horrified" that a re-enactment of the brutal murder is planned for the film as well.
Lawyer's for Knox also want a trailer for the planned film removed from Lifetime's Website as well. Lawyers sent a letter to Lifetime with their demands on the behalf of Knox, threatening legal action if Lifetime does not comply with their wishes.
