Amanda Knox-Inspired Film Trailer Released

A trailer has been released for the Kate Beckinsale film inspired by Amanda Knox and the Meredith Kercher murder case.

The Face of an Angel, which also stars supermodel Cara Delevingne and German actor Daniel Bruhl, is an adaptation of the book Angel Face: Sex, Murder and the Inside Story of Amanda Knox by the American journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau.

It is directed by Michael Winterbottom, whose sequel to The Trip with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon premiered at Sundance Film Festival last month.

Beckinsale stars in the film as a journalist who is investigating a young woman who is accused of murder.

Bruhl stars as a struggling film-maker who travels to Italy to write a film based on the journalist's book on the case.

Knox and RaffaeleSollecito were freed in 2011 after being cleared of their 2009 convictions over the killing.

On January 30 the original convictions were reinstated by at a court in Florence.

Lawyers for the pair say they intend to take an appeal to the highest court.

Winterbottom has reportedly said he does not plan to change his film in light of the convictions.

A source told the Hollywood Reporter the verdicts would have no effect on the Revolution and BBC Films production because it is only loosely based on the murder of British student Ms Kercher in Perugia in 2007.

The Face of an Angel is due for release later this year.
