"The movie will recount the story of Brittany Murphy's younger years, including her mother's efforts to turn her talented daughter into a star in the 1980s and '90s, and then leads up to her death" according to The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the story.

The film will also deal with aspects after Murphy's death in December of 2009, such as her mother's claims that her sudden passing was not an accident. Murphy's mother, Sharon Murphy, who was not consulted during production and has no direct affiliation with the movie, will be portrayed by Sherilyn Fenn.

Murphy and Williams both lent voices to the 2006 film Happy Feet. Both loved to make people laugh and should be remembered fondly.

It is with the new Lifetime Original Movie that we celebrate everything Murphy gave to the world.
