Is a Movie About the Casey Anthony Trial in the Works?
Casey Anthony, the Florida woman acquitted of killing her toddler daughter earlier this year, has repelled book publishers and movie studios who feel it would be tasteless to pay for her story — but that doesn’t mean the whole case is off-limits.
Fox TV Studios optioned the rights to retired prosecutor Jeff Ashton’s book, ‘Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony,’ and is now in talks with cable network Lifetime to adapt it into a TV movie.
Ashton’s book tells the story of the three years Ashton and his team spent preparing the case against Anthony — a woman he still feels got away with murder.
“I have seen my share of liars, but never one quite like [her],” Ashton said.
