One of the most puzzling crimes in modern history has to be the tragic death of British student Meredith Kercher in 2007. 

Despite the crime having occurred over a decade ago in the Italian town of Pugalia, the horrific death still captures the interest of true crime fanatics. 

The case was unique thanks to the salacious media coverage at the time, and Amanda Knox, or 'Foxy Knoxy' became infamous from it.

Amanda made headlines all over the world when she and her boyfriend at the time Raffaele Sollecito were wrongfully convicted of the murder.

Amanda spent four years in an Italian prison until she was acquitted of the crime in 2011.

Amanda Knox's insight into the crime has been well documented through a number of factual films, the most notable being 2016's Amanda Knox documentary on Netflix.

Yup – we were all hooked; on Amanda Knox herself, on Raffaele Sollecito – on the fascinating Nick Pisa. And then there was the tragedy of Meredith Kercher, and the heartbroken family her killing left behind.  

Suffice to say that the Amanda Knox documentary filled a hole left by the conclusion of Making A Murderer. So what now?

Cara Delevingne’s next acting role is not for the faint hearted. She will be starring in The Face Of An Angel alongside Kate Beckinsale and Daniel Bruhl in the film which is based on the murder of Meredith Kercher back in 2007.

Meredith’s killer Amanda Knox, who has been re-convicted of the killing, is threatening to sue the BBC as the case is still ongoing and according to her lawyer, the film could be “damaging to her image” if it is draws direct comparisons to what actually happened. Knox’s lawyer Luciano Ghirga says that if this does happen, legal action may be taken:

“There have already been at least two films and 12 books about the case. If the film is based even loosely on the murder in Perugia and if it is damaging to Amanda's image, we will be asking for damages, as we have done in other cases.”

However, the film is going ahead, and Cara (who plays a fun loving student called Melanie) says that “It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I learnt so much just because I found out a lot about myself.

“I found out that I could act, that I could do it confidently and not be nervous and die because usually I think I’m going to die doing things that scare me! I went in so terrified and nervous but I got so much good advice from Michael and Daniel. We just made a family.”

We definitely can’t wait to see Cara in action – but could her acting success mean her modelling days could be coming to an end?! We hope not!
