The Ending to Lifetime’s Casey Anthony Movie Has Been Written

by | Jul 5, 2011 | Real Life(time) | 13 comments

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.

Casey Anthony begins to put out fake tears in anticipation of a GUILTY verdict from the jury. Her attorney has to inform her that the jury found her NOT GUILTY, much to his surprise as he put his life savings on GUILTY in Vegas.

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.

Update on July 7th, 2011
On the 7/6/2011 BS Report with Bill Simmons (well known sports writer and editor-in-chief of Grantland.com), Bill and his guest Chris Connelly start talking about Jennifer Aniston and then Bill mentions how Aniston could play Casey Anthony in a movie.  Connelly shoots that idea down saying the movie won’t get past cable.  Bill and Connelly then talk about Lifetime movies for about 10 minutes.  Bill throws out some great ideas in Tiffani Thiessen about 10 years ago, but I think I have to agree with him on Hayden Panettiere just with darker hair.  Their conversation starts about 42 minutes in of the 7/6/2011 podcast – listen to it at http://www.grantland.com/podcasts.

    Any TV station that has anything to do with Casey Anthony should be boycotted. The public is not going to forgot about this. It is worse than OJ because a child was involved.

      After all the negative Casey Anthony backlash, I don’t think they’ll want to make a movie about her because of opinions like yours so I think you’re good to just keep enjoying Lifetime – free of Casey Anthony.

    • Dit

    THIS IS PURELY DISGUSTING, THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE A MOVIE OUT OF IT WITHOUT ENDING IT IN A CONVICTION WHICH IS ONLY GOING TO MAKE THE AUDIENCE VERY ANGRY.  WE ALL KNOW SHE DID IT, I AM DISGUSTED. THE REASON I WATCH LIFETIME MOVIES IS BECAUSE THE CRIMINAL IS ALWAYS CONVICTED(MAYBE A FEW MOVIES DIDN’T END THAT WAY BUT VERY VERY FEW).  HOW DISGUSTING.  I’D HATE TO GIVE UP ONE OF MY FAVORITE STATIONS BUT I WILL IF THIS MOVIE IS MADE.

    Lifetime is disgusting. The movies are extremely traumatic, brutal, and downright morbid. How the hell can’t watching these movies not have an effect on one’s brain development or behavior? I hate these movies with a passion. Gross.
