Lana Turner Biopic staring Catherine Zeta Jones.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is trying to convince Leonardo DiCaprio to reprise his role as Howard Hughes in her new film the upcoming Lana Turner biopic. The film, called "Stompanato," is a re-telling of the scandalous murder of thug and wannabe actor Johnny Stompanato, who was stabbed and killed by Turner's 14-year-old daughter.
Keanu Reeves will co-star with Zeta Jones as Turner's abusive lover. The movie will also focus on the film star's many love affairs, including Howard Hughes.

However Lana Turner's daughter Cheryl Crane is so amazed by the striking resemblance between actress Sienna Miller and her late mother, she thinks the Layer Cake star should play Turner in an upcoming biopic.

Crane says, "What staggers me most is how much the lovely Sienna Miller resembles my mom. Really, she is a spitting image of her - sun tan and platinum boyish hairdo. I'm amazed. Sienna is really gorgeous."

Crane,who was just 14 years old at the time of the incident, claimed she
stabbed her mother's boyfriend to protect her, and was acquitted of the
crime on the grounds of justifiable homicide.
