Amanda Knox Film Reduces Meredith Kercher To An Extra At Her Own Funeral

by | 6th, December 2010

AMANDA Knox is not only a murderess appealing against her conviction for her part in the brutal killing for Meredith Kercher, she is a muse, inspiring a TV film called the The Amanda Knox Story. It’s a title that reduces Kercher to an extra in the made-for-TV film of her death.

Playing Knox is Hayden Panettiere. Playing Kercher is Amanda Fernando Stevens. No, she’s not playing the dead body in the film directed by Robert Dornhelm. That would be opportunist, sensationalistic, cheap and sick.

The producers of this macabre show should save it for the sequel…

Amanda Knox, right, listens to her lawyer Maria Del Grosso, at the Perugia court, Italy, Saturday, May 21, 2011. A tearful Amanda Knox said Saturday that being in prison is "very frustrating and mentally exhausting" as the American student convicted of murdering her roommate insisted she is innocent and does not want to spend the rest of her life behind bars. Knox was emotional as she briefly addressed the appeals court in Perugia at the end of the session, her voice breaking at times and her eyes tearing up. She was convicted in 2009 of sexually assaulting and murdering Meredith Kercher of Britain, and sentenced to 26 years in prison. (AP Photo/Stefano Medici)
