Brittany Murphy’s headline-grabbing life ticks off so many boxes on the TV movie must-have list — small town girl makes it big but falls in with the wrong crowd and marries a questionable man before dying tragically young — it’s surprising no one has attempted a biopic of the Clueless and 8 Mile star before now.
