'Anna Nicole' TV movie gets summer premiere date on Lifetime
Starring Agnes Bruckner ("Private Practice") as Playboy playmate and tabloid fixture Smith, the film also stars Oscar winner Martin Landau as Smith's 89-year-old oil tycoon husband, Oscar nominee Virginia Madsen as Smith's mother, Adam Goldberg as lawyer Howard K. Stern and Cary Elwes as Smith's unimpressed son-in-law.
But the most intriguing name involved is director Mary Harron, who was behind contemporary cult classic "American Psycho" and unusual bio-pics "I Shot Andy Warhol" and "The Notorious Bettie Page." Maybe "Anna Nicole" won't turn out to be a laughable "Liz & Dick" style camp-fest after all.
Lifetime had already set the premiere of quickie movie "Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret" for one week earlier, on Saturday, June 22.
