Between their Aaliyah biopic, their Saved By the Bell TV movie, and now news of a Brittany Murphy film, it’s seeming like Lifetime is stuck a decade or two back from the rest of us. Because Lifetime doesn’t eff around with their titles (they’re surprisingly SEO savvy) they have dubbed the Murphy film, The Brittany Murphy Story. No surprises there.

The film will premiere September 6th, and will star Amanda Fuller as Brittany, and Sherilyn Fenn as Brittany Murphy’s mom, Sharon. The early death of the actress caused some internal strife within the family regarding how her two parents dealt with the media following the tragedy.

Because if there’s one thing Lifetime loves, it’s internal strife within the family.

The release date so close to the announcement of the film is rarely a good sign. This could mean that Lifetime isn’t proud of this project, and if Lifetime isn’t proud of something…dear God.

It’s been four years since the early death of Brittany Murphy (though it seems even longer than that) , but her last film Something Wicked is just now making it into theaters. Given the circumstances, I wouldn’t guess it’s being distributed to many of them.

It will premiere in Eugene, OR, where much of it was filmed, and plans after that are sketchy, but I have to imagine this is a terrible date movie unless you’re both really, really macabre.

Redbox Rethinks Posting Photo of Dead Brittany Murphy http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/redbox-rethinks-posting-photo-of-dead-brittany-murphy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/redbox-rethinks-posting-photo-of-dead-brittany-murphy/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Allllright, who's playing a trick on the people over at the film Deadline? If this is a publicity stunt, kudos, everyone. Ku-dos. DVD retailer Redbox, after realizing that they're advertising Brittany Murphy dead in a bathtub and she recently died in bathtub, decided to clean up the panic-induced sh*t in their tighty-whities and pull the poster for Deadline. The recall of the image from over 19,000 kiosks nationwide will take 7 to 10 days to complete, and the film's distributor is working on an alternate DVD cover image. They're running on the assumption that Britany Murphy really is dead and not simply trying to push copies of her latest film. It's probably good to error on the side of caution, but if Murphy reemerges from her tomb in a few days, Redbox is going to look awfully silly. (via Cinematical)

A Tribute to Brittany Murphy http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/a-tribute-to-brittany-murphy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/a-tribute-to-brittany-murphy/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Being a big fan of Brittany Murphy's work in Clueless, Sin City, and 8 Mile, I was saddened by her sudden passing yesterday morning. Even though many of her projects weren't exactly my cup of tea, whenever I did see one of her films I always thought she brought a fun, bubbly nature to the screen. There's no doubt that she possessed a great deal of talent. It's a shame we can no longer see it grow.Check out a few more fun, bubbly pics of Brittany after the jump.

Brittany Murphy Has Died http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/brittany-murphy-has-died/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/brittany-murphy-has-died/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Several news outlets, including TMZ, are reporting that Brittany Murphy passed away this morning due to cardiac arrest. This is especially sad considering the actress was only 32 years old. Murphy was best known for her role as Tai in Clueless, where she got us all rollin' with the homies. You'll be missed, Brittany, so now we offer you one for being our homie these past several years.
