Meredith Kercher was killed during a violent night fuelled by sex and drugs in 2007 and Knox has been sentenced to 26 years in prison for slashing her friend's throat with a knife. Knox is challenging the guilty verdict and her lawyers are adamant that the movie bosses should not be allowed to take her story to Hollywood until the outcome of the appeal is heard.
"It is inconceivable to make a film when a final verdict on this case has not been reached," the Daily Star quoted Maria Del Grosso, Knox's attorney, as saying.
"If the film is shown before the end of the appeals trial we will request it be seized (by authorities)," adds Giulia Bongiorno, a lawyer representing Knox''s ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, who was also convicted of Kercher''s murder.
Both their appeals are to go to court later this year.
