A source told the paper: “It doesn't look like Cara will be playing 'Foxy Knoxy' but she will have a major role, as the director wants to focus on events surrounding the trial and the people whose lives have been affected by it.” The film will be based on the 2009 murder trial of Amanda and her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.

The source continued: “Getting Cara is a real coup for the film but is also brilliant for her career. It proves she's an in-demand actress and will help to boost her career in the US....She has been thinking about relocating there and, with big film offers coming in, it's looking likely movies will soon be Cara's main focus.”

It will also star Daniel Bruhl as a filmmaker researching the trial surrounding the death of Meredith Kercher, and will be directed by Michael Winterbottom, who most recently helmed The Look of Love – starring Steve Coogan and Anna Friel – to critical acclaim.
