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!
