The murder of Meredith Kercher has become an inspiration for BBC to create a film, but Amanda Knox's lawyers have threatened to sue if the film goes out. The film has already won the approval of Meredith's family and is to star Kate Beckinsale and Cara Delevingne.
The film will be based on the book "Angel Face" written by CNN journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau. Nadeau was the one who covered the murder of Kercher in 2007 at the hilltop university town of Perugia.
Kercher, then 21, was found in the cottage she shared with Amanda Knox -- half-naked and her throat slit. Knox had been the first to tip the police to the crime but she was then labeled as a prime suspect. Knox and her then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito served four years in jail for murder and was then released on appeal in 2011. The pair were then re-convicted earlier this year. more >>

Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza avoided jail time and instead was sentenced by a federal judge on Tuesday to spend eight months in a community confinement center during five years of probation after pleading guilty to a campaign finance law violation.
D'Souza, 53, admitted last May to exceeding donor limits in 2012 by arranging for others to give to the New York Senate campaign of Wendy Long, a Republican. He illegally reimbursed two "straw donors" who donated $10,000 each to what turned out to be Long's unsuccessful campaign.
"I'm thankful and relieved that the judge refused all attempts by the government to lock up my friend Dinesh D'Souza," said Gerald Molen, the Oscar-winning producer of D'Souza's 2012 documentary, "2016: Obama's America," upon hearing the sentence. "Putting him behind bars would have served no useful purpose. I commend the judge for his action." more >>
Actor Nicolas Cage recently spoke out about his attitude towards life in Hollywood and his experiences as an "outsider."
"I'm proud of the chances I've taken," the star of the new "Left Behind" film, told Britain's Times Magazine. "They haven't all worked, but I had a concept and I've pushed for it. It's probably annoyed a lot of critics and a lot of people who didn't get in step with it, but I'm proud I did it. Tolstoy said something to the effect of, it doesn't matter whether the response you get is love or hatred, because you've created an effect. What's not worthwhile is when it sits there and people forget about it. But whether people love it or hate it, at least you've done something. That gives me some solace."
Cage has had a long career in Hollywood, with some winners and losers in the film industry. He currently stars in the new "Left Behind" film, alongside Lea Thompson and Chad Michael Murray. The film explores life in the time of the Rapture and those dealing with the aftermath of being "left behind." more >>
