A Casey Anthony Feature Film Is Less Likely To Be Made Because Of Her 'Not Guilty' Verdict, Say Producers!

Three producers tell HollyBaby.com they think we’re more likely to see a made-for-TV movie than a feature film, largely because Casey Anthony was found not guilty! Do YOU want to see this story made into a movie?

Casey Anthony might be the least sympathetic character in the world right now. The 25-year-old mother is widely believed to have murdered her toddler daughter, Caylee, but a jury found her not guilty July 5 — making the ending of a movie about her life largely unsatisfactory. Who wants to watch a movie where the main character gets away with allegedly murdering an adorable child? HollyBaby.com consulted with three producers who explained how they foresee a Casey Anthony movie being made — and why we shouldn’t expect it on a big screen anytime soon!

Nathan Bunker, producer of upcoming feature film The New Republic, feels strongly Casey’s story is less likely to be made into a film for theaters because of its current ending.

“Feature film, no way,” he says. “Television or Lifetime movie has a better chance but I would say it would be iffy at that. Since the majority of the people who followed and watched the case on TV thinks she’s guilty, there’s really no story to show. No one wants the bad guy to get away unless we’re rooting for him/her. In this case not many are rooting for her.”

He adds, “So, for right now, I think no — but if they do end up finding a killer and her hands are completely wiped clean and the world ends up back on her side, then you’ll have your movie.”

George Caceres, actor and producer of the TV show Rockstar Academy and executive producer of the upcoming film Lip Service, believes Casey’s story will make an amazing film — but only if it focuses on her personality and madness and doesn’t emphasize her getting off from murder charges.

“I think it would make a really good film as long as she was portrayed as truly as she is. She’s not a sympathetic character,” George — who’s a father himself and says Casey’s ‘not guilty’ verdict makes his blood boil — explains. “The complexities of her character, she’s crazy. People really relate to crazy characters, like Cybil — she was very interesting. She could be portrayed as something like that.”

He adds, “I think it would be made for TV. I think a lot of people would tune in and watch it. People like to see drama, especially on TV. It’s a money maker. The whole story is a money maker. It should definitely be made into a film.”

Blake Freeman, actor and director for projects like Gawd Bless America and Noobz, agrees with George and thinks Casey’s verdict actually opens up possibilities for a film that didn’t exist before.

“If she was sent to her death the story would be over, but now we get to follow her antics for the rest of her life and it could turn into even more movies on her life,” he says, adding, “It has been fascinating to watch so far, so a movie about it will be equally as fascinating! The possibilities are endless.”

I agree with Nathan,But i wouldn’t see any movie T.V.or Film,or read books. how calus of her to not even be able to stand up in court and say how it happen,but her and her lawyer r surly holding out for the big bucks!she was advised well she didnt have to give us the ending it’s like To Be Continued….She isnt intriging like one producer above mentioned ,she is a sick human being a liar,and the only reason i watched the news was because i wanted to see the verdict.not watch her make money on a dead child whom the whole world fell in love with.Why would we watch and who r the producers having throw her and toss her like TRASH in a SWAMP water sloshing her around and ANIMAL’s geting to her,Duct tape on her mouth,oh maybe Casey still has the original (Henkel) Duct Tape to make the movie more Beliveable……Please have respect for a beautiful baby we all love….to Producers you want to make a movie about a baby why not the Wylie Baby in Wylie,Texas???he was found in a park near a water plant,he was sick couldn’t move his body,couldnt eat had to be fed by tube!his grandma got tired of taking care of him,her daughter had left the baby one day said babysit him for a few days she never came back in years!she was still geting monies from the father!she lived in oklahoma.go make a movie about him and the grandma got a sentence in prison!A grandmother who said she didnt want a trial by jury,she didnt want the public to make judgement of her daughter!!!!!geez producers sleep well….

OMG.sorry to say” Ashleigh”but how would you explain to your daughter about how Caylee was thrown like ‘Trash and decomposed to nothing’ giving her mom the lucky break because no proof of how she died…yourself as a mom have that choice to be and let her be in a movie like this but im just wondering what she will think when she ask’s…
