Amanda Knox Dry Heaves Watching Hayden Pantierre In Film Trailer

by | 8th, February 2011

HAYDEN Panettiere is the woman starring in a made-for-TV film as Amanda Knox, the convicted killer who protests her innocent in the murder of Meredith Kercher. Knox is blonde, white and appealing in Perugia, a picturesque part of Italy. The film is called Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy, a title that suggests that Italy is as much to blame as Knox.

Here’s Pantierre, whose reading of a script gives her a valuable insight into the murder of an innocent British woman:

“I believe in the person that she deep down was. And I think that no matter, regardless of innocent or guilty, I believe she was a… she has a spirit. You know she’s a real person. She was a young girl who had dreams and aspirations and was going to Italy to go to school and to broaden her horizons and have experiences and meet new people. And I don’t think that guilty or innocent takes away from that.”

Well, Knox has achieved her goals. But not all of them. Or as Knox says, “shit happens”.

In other news, the film has not gone down well with Knox’s legal team:

Carlo Dalla Vedova tells us:

“We have seen the trailer and it is completely wrong that a film should be made about a case that has not yet finished and is going through an appeal. Certain scenes in the trailer are inaccurate and have been proved to be inaccurate during the trial, so to say the screenplay is based on events during the trial is also wrong.”

Knox’s stepfather, Chris Mellas, tells ABC News:

“She was so amazingly shocked by [the trailer]… She said she literally started hyperventilating. She felt like she was going to throw up.”

Amanda Knox may be as human as the rest of us after all. Pass the bucket…
