“The Face of an Angel is the newest film by writer-director Michael Winterbottom, who made “24 Hour Party People.” Kate Beckinsale will join Daniel Bruhl who starred in “The Fifth Estate” and Cara Delevingne from the movie “Anna Karenina” in the film.

Kate Beckinsale’s new movie will be written by Paul Viragh. Kate Beckinsale will play a reporter who is covering the Amanda Knox type case. Cara Delevingne will play the Amanda Knox character and Daniel Bruhl is plating a documentary filmmaker who is investigating the case on his own.

Amanda Knox was an American student who was convicted of killing her housemate in Italy. Amanda Knox was later set free on appeal.

Deadline says Kate Beckinsale’s “The Face of an Angel” will be released in 2014. There are also unconfirmed reports that Colin Firth may also be cast in the film.

“The Face of an Angel” in a fictionalized adaptation of Barbie Latza Nadeau's 2010 true crime novel “Angel Face.”

The official release describes “Angel Face” as: “Despite all the airtime devoted to Amanda Knox, it’s still hard to reconcile the fresh-faced honor student from Seattle with the sexually rapacious killer convicted of the November 2007 murder of her British roommate. Few Americans have heard all of the powerful evidence that convinced a jury that Knox was one of three people to sexually assault Meredith Kercher, brutalize her body, and cut her throat. In Angel Face, Rome-based Daily Beast senior writer Barbie Latza Nadeau who cultivated personal relationships with the key figures in both the prosecution and the defense describes how the Knox family’s heavy-handed efforts to control media coverage distorted the facts, inflamed an American audience, and painted an offensive, inaccurate picture of Italy’s justice system. An eye-opener for any parent considering sending a child away to study, Angel Face reveals what really went on in this incomprehensible crime.”
Melissa Parmenter is set to produce.
