Rob Lowe

You're Gonna Dig

My Casey Anthony Movie

Rob Lowe is getting ready to re-try Casey Anthony ... in an upcoming movie about the infamous murder case ... and the actor tells TMZ he's VERY confident people are "gonna dig it."

Lowe was in Malibu yesterday when we asked about "Prosecuting Casey Anthony" -- a Lifetime flick in which Rob is set to play Jeff Ashton, the man who prosecuted Tot Mom for the alleged murder of her daughter Caylee Anthony.

Rob tells TMZ, "It's gonna be interesting ... I think people are gonna dig it ... great script."

Lowe says production starts Monday ... and he's hoping the project will air sometime in January .... roughly 4-and-a-half years after Caylee was murdered.

And those that idolize Jeff Ashton, sit back and think about what he is really doing !!! Keeps bringing attention to that whore Casey. He had that book out in a New York minute while we were all still reeling from the shock of a murderer walking free. He shoves her in our face and the medias face all to make a dollar of blood money.

I might consider watching if I know for sure that not a dime goes to any Anthony family member nor her defense. Even then, probably will pass. That trial outcome broke my heart and we already know the ending. And Casey is so delusional, she might think we actually consider her a celebrity. So after re-thinking, sorry, i won't be watching this. Even if it starred brad pitt.

I WILL NOT watch any movie or read any book about the murder of Caylee. Rob Lowe, what is wrong with you?? What's wrong with Hollywood, do they need fresh writers. Shame on the people behind this movie and I hope Bozo's book doesn't sale. Who will profit from this sick movie??

Hey Rob "No one is going to dig it" Anything tied to the most hated female in the world is not going to get watched. Just the thought of anyone from this tragedy profiting from this makes me ill.
Boycott anything Anthony...
Ashton's running for States Attorney...This could put a big dent in his bid for election.

I cannot wait. Watched the trial and followed the CAase 2 years before trial. Love Rob Lowe. Like the prosecutor's book. I was one of those who needed to see her rot in jail.

Uh    

Makes you wonder if the movie was made to be popular or factual? Most of all it makes me wonder why? Now I remember..It's a Lifeline script.
