If you’re a fan of the late actress Brittany Murphy we’ve good some awesome news to report. The wait to see the beloved star in her last role is about to come to a grinding halt. We just learned moments ago that Something Wicked, Murphy’s final film, has completed post-production and will be presented to distributors in the next few weeks.
Let’s talk about how freaky this is. The pic shows a woman in a wedding dress with the line: “Love is a tragedy waiting to happen.” I don’t think that is her, but maybe it is.
Either way, I would think any real fans would want to stay away. Unless a “fan” is a term for something darker than what I am thinking…
At 08:00 (16:00 GMT) on December 20, 2009, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to “a medical request” at the Los Angeles home Murphy and Monjack shared. She had apparently collapsed in a bathroom. Firefighters attempted to resuscitate Murphy on the scene. She was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival at 10:04 after going into cardiac arrest.
OK, except it was more specific than the bathroom: the shower according to footnote 33.
She had just finished the horror movie, “Deadline.” And there was a big ruckus when the first movie ads at Redbox came out and then were pulled:
Nothing utterly freaky about that. Nope.
And here’s some more from wikipedia:
Shortly after her death, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told the Associated Press: “It appears to be natural.” An autopsy was performed the day after she died. Her death certificate listed the cause of death as “deferred”. On February 4, 2010, the Los Angeles County coroner stated that the primary cause of Murphy’s death was pneumonia, with secondary factors of iron-deficiency anemia and multiple drug intoxication. On February 25, 2010, the coroner released a report stating that Murphy had been taking a range of over-the-counter and prescription medications, with the most likely reason being to treat a cold or respiratory infection. These included “elevated levels” of hydrocodone, acetaminophen, L-methamphetamine and chlorpheniramine. All of the drugs were legal and the death was ruled to be an accident, but the report observed: “the possible adverse physiological effects of elevated levels of these medications cannot be discounted, especially in her weakened state.”
On May 23, 2010, her widower Simon Monjack was found dead at the same Hollywood Hills residence. In July 2010, Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter stated that the cause of his death was acute pneumonia and severe anemia.
Of course it was. Because, like the tagline of the horror girl in the wedding dress tells us: “Love is a tragedy waiting to happen.
Excuse me while I move on.
But I won’t be seeing the movie.
