Lifetime considers Casey Anthony movie

Lifetime has already tackled the controversial case of Amanda Knox and is working on a movie about Drew Peterson, so it's not much of a surprise that it would consider a movie based on Casey Anthony's headline-grabbing case.

We suggested as much in July, after Anthony was acquitted of murder and child abuse charges in relation to the death of her two-year-old daughter Caylee. Lifetime just seemed like an option for an Anthony movie to show up. At the time, the network didn't have anything in development.

Variety reports that Lifetime is now developing a potential TV movie that would be based on the memoir of Jeff Ashton, the attorney who prosecuted Anthony's case.

Ashton's memoir, "Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony," chronicles the three-year period he and his team tried to convict Anthony, and the film would let the story of the murder case unfold from their perspective.

But, Lifetime has yet to give the TV movie the green light. In the meantime, Ashton's 336-page book arrived on shelves Tuesday.

    Shame on Life Time for allowing this movie, they have said they would never put on a movie regarding anything about Casey Anthony. I am very disappointed in Rob Lowe, I guess he needed money at a little girl who was killed by the hands of her Mother. I will not watch!!! Please no one support or watch this movie!

    We all know Lifetime can only make three types of movie: woman-in-jep, woman-in-pain and the terrible femme fatale but must they run this one through their meat grinder? Either she's guilty which makes her the Fatale that got away with Murder or she's innocent which makes her Woman-In-Pain. Bor-ing! Much better would be the story of a district attorney forced to prosecute in murder trial with insufficient evidence because of pressure caused by relentless publicity. Now, There's a Tragedy.

    Until now, I thought the only way a Casey Anthony movie would work on Lifetime would be if they somehow managed to make her and her mother out to be the poor innocent victims, and her father and brother out to be pure evil. Looks like they decided to show a little more variety! With that said, I'm not sure I'll watch it even if it is based on Jeff Ashton's book. I've seen and heard enough of that to last a... lifetime. LOL!

    Hopefully karma will catch up with her. If she doesn't stay out of the spotlight, something will will happen eventually happen to her.

    I'd say boycott every company that made any profits off of this case, but that would pretty much cover everyone in the media. The media is a bunch of moral-less greedy #$%!s.

      it still seems wrong for any media to profit from tragic events
      if they only covered positive news, that'd be biased and probably less than half truth. i know it's their job to report news, and controversial news is what sales, but they could maybe try to level it out a little bit... i don't think i could live with myself over any profits related to a child's death

    These Lifetime movies serve as outcome studies of families troubled by Denial and Addictions.Just like the wild and whacky celebrity stories aired daily, the media is fascinated with high profile addiction behavior cases but rarely recognize it as such or provide quality journalistic reporting of these addictions as the primary contribution to the sad and highly predictable outcomes. Our modern systems including our media systems need rehab as shared in the book, "Analyzing Monsters".

    It would be interesting to see who they end up getting to play Caycee. Maybe if Anna Kendrick's agent slipped her the contract in the midst of a whole bunch of other papers . . .

    (Reality check: I strongly doubt if Anna Kendrick or any other reputable actress would be caught dead accepting this role. It will probably go to someone obscure and desperate who will ruin her career at the outset by accepting.)

The 12 geniuses made their decision and we have to live with it. Let's just not make her into more of a celebrity over it. A true punishment for a narcissist is to be isolated and forgotten.

    A movie, why not a TV series. After all, I am sure there are plenty of moms who don't report their children missing after 30 days. (being sarcastic) I wonder if the jury (in their backgroud left their kids alone for more than 30 days) did not report their children missing after a period of time. makes me wonder. My son was missing for 3 minutes and I went nuts. His father was standing behind me. Maybe I was wrong to panic -should have waited 30 days and catch up on my sleep and party like an animal and tatoo buena vida. Damm I must have missed someting Too bad he's 30 year old now.

    Under American law, you're innocent until proven guilty. The prosecutor, in the view of the jury, failed to prove Casey Anthony guilty.

    I think there's something fundamentally wrong with a justice system that allows an unsuccessful prosecutor to continue to try the case in the court of public opinion (via the bookstores) even after the defendant was acquitted.

    Some of you are as dumb as a box of rocks. Acquitted does NOT mean, I repeat NOT mean she is innocent. I believe Casey Anthony killed Caylee and I believe that there were somw jurors anxious to light fireworks so the 2 that caved into saying not guilty are cowards for caving- I would have been the cause of a hung jury if I were a juror. And no we can NOT let it go- a baby was killed. If she didnt do it (all the evidence shows she did) then why are they letting it go?

    I followed the trial and there was no doubt in my mind this horrible woman killed her child and then tried to put the blame on anyone, including her father. If she ends up making money in addition of walking free, there is no justice in the world. I will support Ashton's book and the movie only if she makes ZERO dollars.

    I would watch it is see if any other leads/suspects were ever followed or if the prosecutor had always sought Casey out for this crime. I don't know if she did or did not do it, but it would be interesting to see how the case was developed and why they wanted to go for all or nothing with the death penalty. I personally think they might have gotten a conviction for a lessor charge that did not include the death penalty and by going for it all, they gave it away.

      Are you kidding?? Jeff Ashton in my opinion deserves every penny off this book. He worked his butt off for three years to get this psycho put away for her crime. I'm sure he was as stunned as the nation was at the verdict. He must have felt sick at heart over it after putting his blood sweat and tears into it. Writing this book was probably also a catharsis for him. I don't begrudge him one bit any profit he makes off it. He more than deserves it!

      That's because when people are outraged by something as horrendous as what Casey did, it is pretty hard to forget. I would equate it on the level of the O.J. Simpson murders–not something you read or hear about everyday. And about as heinous as it gets. So yes, people are still angry.

    Let's face it.. People WILL watch , they have been fascinated with the story for years. The lies this woman told alone are more than most people could conjur up. If Ashton wants to tell his story he should.. I doubt the jurors would have the balls to because to admit you were blindsided by the lies as well would be.. a shame. Her parents can't agree on what happened so that won't sell.. the court proceedings were as close to factual events that we saw.
    Casey will NEVER convince me, she didn't kill her daughter. So let her roam the streets for the rest of her life they will point and stare.. she got off easy.
    Caylee death as tragic as it was will change laws.. Parents who don't report their kids missing , their deaths, the neglect all of that will be noticed hopefully by each of us who saw what happened to Caylee.

I think there was information the DA's office could not share during the trial and he's now free to provide us with more insight. That said, I would be extremely upset if Lifetime were considering making this movie from Casey's point of view.

      I hear ya, guy. And these are the same people who watched the trial and bought the whole 9 yards of the prosecutions theory. These are the same people who found her "guilty" BEFORE THE TRIAL based on Nancy Grace's "theories".(I guess they think that Nancy Grace should have been a "witness". LOL. but sad. Sigh.)

    If the movie is based off the Prosecutors book, and Casey Anthony makes no money from it,
    I want to see it.
    Will be interesting to see how exactly he thinks Anthony "did it".

      I've got the eBook and have already started it. I would prefer that some part of the money go to one the child find groups. Tim Millers group has been hit hard economically. So has Child Find. That would be the best way for any monies to be distributed.

      Jeff Ashton already told the jurors and the world "how he thinks she did it". They didn't buy it. What makes you think he will reveal "how she did it" in this money making book? His main "revelation" now is that she told the psychiatrist that she thought George killled her after molesting her. What's new with that? it is right in line with what the defense had to say about it in court......but they couldn't accuse him of murder because they would be pitting Casey against "poor George", so they went with "she drowned in the pool and George knew about it". I firmly believe that is true and we will never really know who actually killed her and dumped her body in the woods.

      Acquitted or not-guilty- in the end doesn't matter – a little girl lost her life and was dumped like trash. If the jury had been able to see all the evidence and not the bull that Baez brought up – there would have been justice – but defense lawyers like Baez is what gives attorneys bad names. I know one thing tho – if I ever murder anyone – I'll have Baez as my attorney. I hope Lifetime does not air this – I love that channel but I will exercise my rights and not watch it anymore and find out what companies advertise with them and boycott them too.

      I agree with you Stacey. Ashton LOST. She was aqcuited because the jurors did not buy Ashton's case, plain and simple. Jeff Ashton needs to study and learn the real class of a prosecutor like David Walgren....now that is a prosecurtor with class. Not one like Ashton who giggles behind his hands as the defense was speaking to the jurors, and then DENIES HE WAS LAUGHING to the judge. The man has NO CLASS and HE LOST THE CASE BECAUSE THE JURORS SAW RIGHT THROUGH HIS FICTIONALIZED ACCOUNT OF WHAT HAPPENED and did not like him.I will bet they acquited her because they did not like the demeanor of Ashton and saw right through his bullying tactics. I despise prosecutors like this. ( I am wondering if the sidebar discussions have been released....I will bet that is an eye opener about Ashton and his cry baby personality).

      What an idiot you are: CASEY ANTHONY WOULD NOT GET PAID FOR THIS MOVIE.....JEFF ASHTON WOULD. IT IS BASED ON HIS BOOK. He LOST THE DAMNED CASE. HE SHOULD LIVE WITH IT. If he hadn't overcharged her, made up a "ficitonalized" account of what he THINKS she did, maybe she'd be behind bars now for the coverup. Jeff Ashton is a sore loser, and totally unethical to be covering his own butt by criticizing the defense lawyers for "WINNING" the case. Then he quits his job immediately so he could cash in on the book and now a movie.
      I don't think we will ever know what REALLY happened to poor Caylee, but I would bet my bottom dollar that dear George had a lot more to do with it than Casey herself. I would not trust that man as far as I could throw him. As his ex-wife said: "George is a consumate liiar".And boy is he good at it.
      The story Casey told to the psychiatrists (according to Ashton) sounds more reasonable than anything Ashton came up with at trial. The defense could not accuse George with murder because it was Casey's word against Georgie's, so they went with "she drowned in the pool" story and George covered it up. I am sure that even Casey does not know what preceded George getting out of the pool wet from the waste up. Was he retrieving her body because she got into the pool herself.....or did he actually just dump her body in the pool after he molested her because she was about to talk? That guy knew where her body was all along....how convenient for him that he now says to Dr. Phil that he bought the "prosecution's theory" all along. He was so afraid of Cindy that he covered the whole damn thing up and made it look like Casey did it. I know you all think I am nuts....but that is my instinct about this man from the very beginning of his sanctimonious interviews from the very beginning. He told Casey that he was going to point the finger at her, and she PANICKED and covered it up with that crazy story that she was kidnapped by the nanny. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction, folks.

      To M. Rose: I definitely think your explaination is viable. I questioned why that man tried to kill himself during all of this. At least he can still be charged and tried if any other evidence comes out and points to him. Then maybe some justice could come of it all. I wonder if the case is closed or is anyone still investigating?

    I remember watching the movie, "Small Sacrifices" starring Farrah Fawcett, which was a true story of a mother killing one of her three children and severely injuring the other two. At the end of the movie she is in shackles and walking into a much deserved sentence. The Casey Anthony story won't end that way, in fact she is probably on a beach some where getting a tan. This just makes me so mad because there was no justice for Caylee.

      This comment is directed to Feast of the Beast: You're angry, and you think others should be, too?! Sweetheart, you don't make decisions on whether or not I should be angry and to whom I direct my anger. I personally feel no anger toward Casey Anthony because I have never met her, she has never directly wronged me, and I feel that judgment of her rests with the Lord – not me...or you. Go ahead and eat yourself alive with your anger. If you think it makes you a good person, you are sadly mistaken. If you think being angry, inciting anger in others or writing a few sentiments in an online discussion, will result in fewer Casey Anthonys in the future, you are seriously delusional. I will probably not watch the movie because it will surely be slanted, just like the so-called news coverage (CNN, Fox, Internet) with so-called journalists (like Nancy Grace, Jane Valez-Mitchell) who are making their fortunes repeatedly whipping weak minds like yours into a frenzy. It's time to move on.
