Lifetime’s Brittany Murphy biopic is officially happening, and we’ve got the trailer to prove it.
Buzzfeed debuted the brand new trailer for “A Brittany Murphy Story” on Friday, and to say Lifetime’s take on the late star’s story is going to be melodramatic would be a massive understatement. In the trailer, we see star Amanda Fuller portray Murphy as she reaches her “Clueless” fame, then massively down-spirals due to paranoia, paparazzi attention, and prescription pills.
The trailer also depicts Murphy’s 2009 death from cardiac arrest at the age of 32, and it definitely seems like they’re going to make the whole thing into a very Lifetime murder mystery.
“What killed Brittany?” a member of the press asks Murphy’s grieving family.
“You did,” answers Murphy’s late husband Simon Monjack (Eric Petersen), who died five months after his wife. “You all killed her.”
Check out the trailer below, and in case you were wondering, yes, that is an “Ashton Kutcher” appearance around the 0:31 mark:
“The Brittany Murphy Story” airs September 6 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
