The Ending to Lifetime’s Casey Anthony Movie Has Been Written
A few months ago, I mentioned how Lifetime will most likely eventually have a Casey Anthony movie in the works and I bet that Lifetime most likely had the script written up but just had to wait to see how the trial played about before finishing it and signing off on all the production. Well today the jury came to the decision of Casey Anthony being found NOT GUILTY. Yeah, you read that right, Casey Anthony is NOT GUILTY of murdering her daughter, Caylee, even though she didn’t report her infant daughter missing for about a month.
Lifetime now has the full movie. It can begin with a Casey being a normal party girl and then getting pregnant and then having Caylee. There can be a few good months of being a mother in there until Casey realizes all the partying she’s missing and that’s when she advises the plan to rid herself of Caylee – although I don’t think Lifetime could portray it that way if they were going to use Casey’s name in the movie.
After Caylee’s death, Lifetime could then focus on the trial as they like to often do in movies, although I could use less trial and more outside the courtroom drama. Before the credits roll, the typical “After Casey Anthony was found not guilty she went on to live…” could show to let the viewers know what’s up with Casey Anthony today.
There’ll be plenty of media coverage after this, I’m sure Casey will do the rounds of NBC and ABC morning shows. After seeing some of the initial reaction to the verdict, it looks like this is right up there with the OJ murder, it just isn’t so racially divided and it doesn’t involve a famous NFL running back, other than that, it involves a murder, national media coverage, and a verdict not many expected. It really could have used an updated Bronco chase though, only it would have been sweet if it were a ’95 Ford Taurus or something.
Some quickly thought out proposed titles of the movie could be:
- Not Guilty of Murder
- She Drown? My Ass!
- Uhhh, What Went on with the Jury
- How NOT to Prosecute
I have to give this a 5/5 on the “Probability This Will Really Be Made into a Lifetime Movie” Scale.
