Brittany Murphy's final project was "Abandoned," which probably would have went straight to DVD if it wasn't for the actress' recent death. But now, Anchor Bay Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the rights to the film, starring Murphy, Dean Cain and Mimi Rogers, and is planning on releasing in theaters.
"Brittany will be deeply missed by everyone who worked on Abandoned," film producers said in a statement. "The film is a taut thriller which portrays Brittany's character as smart and tough -- and that's how we all want to remember her."
Anchor Bay president added that while it is an "honor" to distribute the film, the company will wait an appropriate amount of time between the film's release and Murphy's death. The new movie is expected to be released during the summer.
In "Abandoned," Mary Walsh (Murphy) is suspected of being crazy after her boyfriend (Cain) disappears from a local hospital during a routine surgery.
THIS is getting a theatrical release?!?! Not only did that trailer give the ENTIRE movie away (!!!) but it looks mind numbingly awful! It's such a shame that such a sh*tty looking movie is the final film role of Brittany Murphy since she's actually a fairly talented actress.
BTW nope.com - Dean Cain was in Out of Time with Denzel Washington and a Denzel Washington feature does NOT belong straight to dvd.
"portrays Brittany's character as smart and tough-- and that's how we all want to remember her."
to bad she wasn't like that in real life. if she was smart, she wouldn't have O.D on drugs. if she was tough, she wouldn't have let the fact that she didn't get a part in Happy Feet 2 f*cking "break her heart" or whatever.
also that trailer did give away just about the entire plot and i doubt I'll watch it.

Maybe she knew this movie was going to suck COC's dead Mom's COC so she offed herself over this and it had nothing to do with Happy Feet 2.
'Brittany will be deeply missed...' --- sounds like the Producers spent some time penetrating her. HAWT! Maybe the gangbang killed her? Or maybe she was so depressed from said gangbang she offed herself over the incident.
I wonder if she's telling COC's Mom right now what a douche he is?
Did Brittany like COC? Don't know... she never met that short bus-riding 'tard!
that's what my therapist said ... may he rest in pieces!

Haha, your a funny man. Always count on you for the (mostly inappropriate) one-liners!

I see the Law has quashed her family for setting up that cash-grabbing (un-licensed charitable) foundation to 'remember Brittany.' And were ordered to return all donations (fools and their money are soon parted).
