The death of comedian Brittany Murphy at 32 was tragic. Noticed after her amazing role in Clueless, Murphy died under mysterious circumstances in 2009, and gossip and rumors can still be heard uptill.
Now and these rumors will be the subject of at least one film about Murphy and her death. Film School Rejects received a strange press report that says “Brittany Murphy‘s Mysterious Death Chronicled in Controversial New Documentary; Biopic on the 8 Mile Star to Follow in 2014.”
But the documentary is not really about Murphy as much as exploring problems in Transportation Security Administration’s approach to aviation security. Meaning, the film will focus on national security Julia Davis, who the press release declares “was falsely declared a ‘Domestic Terrorist’ and subjected to retaliation of unprecedented proportions by the Department of Homeland Security.”
The connection with Murphy? Well, the press release notes Murphy was a friend of Davis’ and a witness in the former Border Protection Agent’s litigation against the Department of Homeland Security. Murphy and her her husband Simon Monjack, who died a few months after Murphy, were targeted by the Department of Homeland Securities and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. AKA they were murdered.
Directed by Asif Akbar, the documentary is titled Top Priority: The Terror Within appears to be an adaptation of the nonfiction book Unsafe At Any Altitude. You can check out the trailer below:
