‘The Amanda Knox Story’ Coming to the Small Screen

That an Amanda Knox biopic would be made was inevitable. The ingredients are just too good. In 2007, the 20-year-old, all-American gamine (pictured) was studying abroad in Perugia, Italy when she was accused of violently murdering her roommate in the wake of a drug-fueled orgy. After an eleventh month trial and no end of did she? didn’t she? media speculation about “Foxy Noxy,” an Italian court found her guilty and sentenced her to 26 years in prison. She’s currently trying to appeal the verdict, but Lifetime isn’t holding its breath. The Amanda Knox Story has been greenlit for production and should air sometime next year. See who’ll play her after the jump.

Though actresses from Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox to Emily Blunt and Kristen Stewart have all been nominal contenders for the role, Deadline is reporting that Hayden Panettiere will be the one to Knox it up. What I’m wondering is which side of thing they’re going to come down on: innocent, guilty, or unclear.
