Voltage Media is offering its upcoming film in its Haunting anthology series The Haunting of Nicole Brown Simpson for worldwide distribution at Cannes. According to ScreenDaily, the film stars Mena Suvari as Simpson, ex-wife to former football star O.J. Simpson, who went on trial for her murder and the murder of her friend Ron Goldman in 1995.
The film, to be directed by Daniel Ferrands, will focus on Simpson’s life, which includes a friendship with Glen Rogers, a man she didn’t know was actually a serial killer. Allegedly, Rogers has confessed to a criminal profiler that he is actually Simpson’s killer. The families of Simpson and Goldman still maintain that O.J. is the real killer.
The film will undoubtedly be on a search for young actors to play the parts of Simpson’s children, Sydney and Justin. There’s also the assumption that the film might need an actor to play O.J. himself.
Farrands is also producing the film along with Lucas Jarach and Eric Brenner. Jim Jacobsen of Skyline Entertainment will act as executive producer.
The Haunting of Nicole Brown Simpson is the second in a series for horror films inspired by real-life events. The first, The Haunting of Sharon Tate, stars Hilary Duff and finished filming in Los Angeles this year.
