While the world waits to hear the final official results of Brittany Murphy’s autopsy and toxicology reports in the wake of her shocking death last weekend, producers of her final film Abandoned have released promo photos and video footage from the project. Here are a few promo photos of Brittany in Abandoned and some info about the newly released video footage:
Associated Press has got its hand on the first clip from psychological thriller “Abandoned”. Debuted on Tuesday, December 22, the 45-second snippet gives the first look at Brittany Murphy being evaluated by a doctor who doesn’t believe her memories are valid. The video also features a flashback as she recalls her moment in the past. In this indie film, Murphy stars as Mary, a woman who is convinced her husband Kevin has disappeared. As nobody believes her, Mary is fighting not only to find him but also to counter threats to her own life and sanity. Taking the role of Mary’s husband is Dean Cain. The film is additionally supported by Mimi Rogers who plays Markham, and Peter Bogdanovich who portrays Dr. Markus Bensley. Directed by Michael Feifer who also serves as producer, “Abandoned” is planned for 2010 release schedule in the U.S.
For the most part, I’ve been a big fan of Brittany’s movies … as I mentioned before, I fell in love with her as Tai in Clueless back in 1995 and found myself enjoying her work in the years that followed (I was particularly impressed with her work in 8 Mile). The premise of his film sounds interesting, tho, I’m not sure that it is necessarily my cup of tea. After the jump, check out a vid clip from Abandoned and judge for yourselves if it’s a film that you might be interested in seeing …
It is so sad, still, to consider that Brittany’s life ended at 32 … such a tragedy. With all the harsh speculation going around regarding the circumstances of her death, I hope her family can find some solace this holiday season.
