An O.J. Simpson movie about the murder trial is underdevelopment. MSN reported on Thursday, March 21 that the Fox network has announced that they are developing a a movie series that will be based on the O.J. Simpson murder trial.
The O. J. Simpson murder case (officially called the People of the State of California v. Orenthal James Simpson) was a criminal murder trial held in Los Angeles County, California Superior Court that spanned from the primary jury being sworn in on November 2, 1994 to opening statements on January 24, 1995 to a verdict on October 3, 1995.
On June 13, 1994 Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were found murdered outside of Nicole Brown Simpson's condo in Los Angeles.
Evidence found and collected at the scene of the murder led police to suspect that O.J. Simpson was the murderer. Wikipedia reports that Nicole Brown Simpson had been stabbed numerous times in the head and neck with defense wounds on her hands.
Simpson's lawyers convinced the LAPD to allow O.J.Simpson to turn himself in at 11 am on June 17, 1994, even though the double murder charge meant no bail and a possible death penalty verdict if convicted.
There was mass media coverage awaiting O.J. Simpson's arrival at the police station, but O.J.. Simpson never showed up. Finally around 2 p.m. the Los Angeles Police Department issued an all-points bulletin on O.J. Simpson.
Robert Kardashian, a Simpson friend and member of his one of his defense team, read a letter by O.J. Simpson to the media.
In the letter Simpson sent greetings to 24 friends and wrote, "First everyone understand I had nothing to do with Nicole's murder ... Don't feel sorry for me. I've had a great life."
To many, this sounded like a suicide note, and the reporters joined the search for Simpson. A motorist in Orange County around 6:20 pm, called the police stating that they had saw O.J. Simpson riding in his white Bronco, driven by his friend, A. C. Cowlings.
The police began tracking placed from O.J.Simpson on his cell telephone. Around 6:45 pm, a police officer saw the Bronco, going north on Interstate 405. When the officer approached the Bronco with sirens blaring, Cowlings yelled that Simpson was in the back seat of the vehicle and had a gun to his own head.
The officer backed off, but followed the vehicle at 35 miles per hour with up to 20 police cars participating in the White Bronco car chase.
The White Bronco chase grew in size and were joined by 20 helicopters.
Radio station KNX also provided live coverage of the slow-speed pursuit. USC sports announcer Pete Arbogast and station producer Oran Sampson contacted former USC coach John McKay to go on the air and encourage Simpson to end the pursuit. McKay agreed and asked Simpson to pull over and turn himself in instead of committing suicide.
Simpson demanded that he be allowed to speak to his mother before he would surrender. The chase ended at 8:00 pm at his Brentwood home, 50 miles (80 km) later, where his son Jason ran out of the house to greet him.
Simpson was allowed to go inside for about an hour; a police spokesman stated that he spoke to his mother and drank a glass of orange juice, resulting in laughter from the reporters.
Shapiro arrived and a few minutes later, Simpson surrendered to authorities. In the Bronco the police found "$8,000 in cash, a change of clothing, a loaded .357 Magnum, a passport, family pictures, and a fake goatee and mustache.
The O.J. Simpson trial went on to become one of the most watched controversially televised trials of the decade with millions of viewers glued to their TVs throughout the entire trial.
So question is would you like to relive the events in an O.J. Simpson movie on Fox?
