Hayden Panettiere will play Amanda Knox in a Lifetime movie to air next year, Variety reports.
Knox, an American exchange student, was accused of killing her roommate while studying in Italy in 2007 and found guilty in Italian court last year. She is currently serving a 26-year jail sentence and will appear in court in November to appeal her conviction.
