LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Filming will begin in Los Angeles early next month on a motion picture about the life of Anna Nicole Smith, CNN has learned.

Producer Jack Nasser of All-Media Productions told CNN on Friday that his company is in the process of casting the lead role in the film, which could be released as early as June.

"We're moving as quickly as possible" on the production, Nasser told CNN. "We're on what we call 'the fast track.' "

Nasser said the film will cover Smith's life from from age 17 until her death last month at 39, including her marriage to billionaire J. Howard Marshall and the death of her son Daniel.

Nasser said his film will focus on "the positive" about Smith, whose February 8 death caused a media sensation. "It's not focused on the trash," he said.

Nasser's company has produced a long list of little-known TV movies, including "Amber's Story," "Hostage Negotiator" and "The Suspect."

He told CNN the untitled Smith biopic is intended for a theatrical release but could wind up on TV.

Nasser said it was not necessary for him to obtain the rights to Smith's story to make the film because it is based on biographical details that have been widely reported.

"She's very famous," he told CNN. "There's so much in the public domain. In this case rights aren't necessary."

Casting for the role of Smith will begin next week, he said. Nasser said he may cast two women, one to play the younger Smith, the other the older. A casting notice online specifies the role involves "some minor nudity for two brief striptease" scenes. Smith was a stripper in Texas when she met her late husband, Marshall.

Actors also will be cast to play Marshall, Smith's son Daniel at ages 5, 9 and 16, and the private nurse who discovered Smith's lifeless body in a Florida hotel room, among other roles.

Nasser told CNN his company had been at work on a film about Smith for the last two years and stepped up production after she died unexpectedly.

"We just kicked it into gear" after her death, he said.

Jenna Jameson as Anna? I've read that, since her split from hubby, she'd like to do some roles outside of porn, the woman that played Mimi from Drew Carey's show for Virgie Arthur is perfect! Jay Mohr as Birkhead, Henry Winkler could play Stern or the Judge. Hristy Swanson as Anna is my first choice (like I have a say)! LOL! Rosie O'Donnell as Debra Opri, Billy Ray Cyrus as Tom Pirtle, Fred Thompson (senator) as John O'Quinn.

Tori Spelling is always playing the roles of a beautiful woman...I had always wondered if anyone had noticed...Tori is not pretty at all.....She may be a nice person...but there is no amount of makeup that would make her into a beauty...I am glad to read the other posted commenting on her lack of beauty..I thought I was alone in seeing that the Emperor has no clothes...

Brooke Hogan (Hulk Hogan's) daughter is the perfect choice for Anna Nicole. Tall, Blond, Thick, and no talent!!

Pam Anderson as Anna. Sandra Bullock as Opri. Paris Hilton as Barf. Super daddy Bradd Pitt as Larry and with a lot of makeup to ugly him up Johnny Depp as Howard. Because that guy really gets into his character and would do an Ocar winning performance exposing Stern as the low life he is. Suri Cruise as Danielynn because she has the experience of living holed up in a mansion with a couple of creepy parents and only surfaces now and then for a photo op.

I just assumed that Tori got the attractive roles because of her father. I certainly don't mean to be rude but, I find her very unattractive. As a person, I've read she was a "daddy's little girl, diva" but, things are much different for her now.

#65 In the atricle it says they will only focus on the good of ANS not the trash, well i guess that will will be one short movie cause her whole life as an adult was nothing but trash, she fucked everybody under and over, all they have to do to get someone to play her is go to Hollywood and sunset pick up any hooker dress her up do a few cosmetic surgeries, make sure shes on heavy duty drugs and there you have it ANs.
