HAYDEN PANETTIERE “FLATTERED” TO LAND AMANDA KNOX ROLE

Posted in Hayden Panettiere on October 14, 2010 by fadedblog

Hayden Panettiere acted quite camera-shy as she arrived at Mahiki nightclub in London, England on Wednesday (October 13).

While her boxer boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko was busy in training mode, the former Heroes actress looked long and lean in head to toe black as she spent the evening partaking in a few cocktails.

Hayden is currently in London for the premiere of her animated children’s film Alpha and Omega.

Meanwhile, Hayden has just signed on to portray convicted murderer Amanda Knox in a made for television film called The Amanda Knox Story.

As you may recall, Knox was sentenced to 26 years in jail for the 2007 killing of British student Meredith Kercher in Italy.

Although the film hasn’t started filming yet, the family of Miss Kercher have released a statement slamming the production.

The family’s lawyer Francesco Maresca says: “It is inopportune as the trial is still on going with two further appeals.”

Miss Kercher’s mother Arline said it was insulting for the film to be named after her daughter’s killer.

She said: “I don’t see how they can make a film called The Amanda Knox Story when the story is really all about my daughter. It’s all very odd.”

For her part, Hayden says she was “floored” and “flattered” to be asked to play Knox in the upcoming movie.

She says the script is “very well done” and she doesn’t think anyone will have a problem with it.

Miss Panettiere would like to meet Miss Knox to get a feel for the role, but says she doesn’t think it will be possible.

Lifetime Television is set to produce a made-for-TV movie about Amanda Knox, the American exchange student convicted of murdering Meredith Kercher, her British roommate, while studying abroad in Italy, and they already have their star – Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere!

According to the New York Post, the 21-year-old actress will play the Seattle native in the movie which is slated to air in 2011 on the women’s cable network.

Hayden beat out some stiff competition from a host of big name actresses, including Kristen Stewart, Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox, to land the role of Miss Knox, which received a lot of interest due to the high profile of the case.

As you may recall, Amanda and her 23-year-old Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were found guilty of murdering Kercher, a 21-year-old exchange student from England, and were sentenced to over 20 years in prison despite prosecutors’ pleas for a life sentence.

Judges who convicted the-then 20-year-old believed she took part in a sex game with Sollecito and Guede which led to Meredith’s throat being cut.

Knox’s appeal against her conviction is expected to be heard in November. Her attorneys will argue that the DNA evidence presented at her trial was flawed.

Hayden Panettiere is a supportive girlfriend.

The former Heroes actress was all smlies as she sat ring side with her brother and father as her boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko gained a knock out victory against Samuel Peter in Frankfurt, Germany on Saturday (September 11).

Sitting in the row in front of Miss Panettiere was none other than Wladmimir’s ex-wife Natalia Klitschko, who was surprisingly very friendly towards her ex-husband’s much younger girlfriend.

Next up for Wladimir? He’s set to defend his titles on December 11. As for Hayden? She’s currently filming the upcoming Scream 4 flick. Filming was scheduled to end on September 6, after a 42-day shoot, but was moved to September 24. Filming takes place in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan. Hayden will play the role of Kirby Reed alongside Emma Roberts and Rory Culkin.

Hayden Panettiere put on her best scared face as she filmed the forthcoming horror flick Scream 4 in Michigan yesterday (August 18).

Joined by co-star Emma Roberts, the blonde beauty didn’t looked too freaked out to be filming in a spooky forest location in the Detroit town of Ann Arbor.

Meanwhile, Hayden reportedly flew off the handle when she was refused entry into a club recently.

The former Heroes hottie — who will celebrate her 21st birthday this weekend — apparently got into a screaming match with a doorman outside trendy LA hotspot Villa after he told Hayden she couldn’t come in because she lacked legal ID.

“Are you kidding me?” Hayden is quoted as saying. “I come here all the time. Why is this an issue NOW? I turn 21 in a couple of weeks…so what the hell is your problem?”
