Arias murder case gets the Hollywood treatment

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

The Jodi Arias trial took a break Friday, but the phenomenon surrounding this murder trial does not.

Earlier this week, we confirmed that a movie about Arias is already in the works and now we're learning more details about the project.

There's an actual script already written for the film -- we don't know where it's going to air or when, but we're getting a look at what this case will look like when it gets the Hollywood treatment.

The title alone reveals the movie will be more than just an ordinary Hollywood murder mystery: "Dirty Little Secrets: The Jodi Arias Story."

The script describes Jodi as a single-minded, head strong, quick tempered young woman, hell-bent on emotionally suffocating and controlling Travis Alexander.

The screenwriter paints Travis as "emotionally undone by the sexually forward Jodi" and the script is filled with many of the salacious sexual details we've heard from the trial.

The opening scene starts with a shot of a naked Jodi, straddling a chair and looking over her shoulder to the camera with her quote, "smoldering eyes."

Later scenes show Arias in skimpy black leather corsets and strutting around in underwear with "Travis's" written across the rear.

Shots of investigators inside the Mesa home where Alexander was killed are interwoven throughout scenes of the tumultuous relationship.

And even though Arias claims to not remember stabbing and shooting Travis, the screenwriters have their version of that deadly day.  "Each time the blade connects, blood sprays her face, her clothes, the wall."

There is an appearance by the ghost of Travis and the closing scene involves Arias looking into the camera and giving a smile.

They are still casting the movie, but we should know who will play Jodi and Travis soon since filming is scheduled to begin in just a few weeks -- April 13 -- that should be right around when the trial ends.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
