Actress Tania Raymonde is in final negotiations to play Jodi Arias in “Dirty Little Secrets: The Jodi Arias Story,” HLN confirmed Wednesday through a Lifetime representative.
Raymonde is best known for her role as Alex Rousseau in ABC’s "Lost" from 2006 to 2010.
HLN also confirmed that actor Jesse Lee Soffer has been cast as Travis Alexander in the upcoming movie. Soffer most recently starred as Nate Devlin in the TV series "The Mob Doctor."
"Dirty Little Secrets" will tell the story of Arias, 32, who is currently on trial in Phoenix, Arizona, for the 2008 slaying of her ex-boyfriend, Alexander.
The movie will portray Arias as a “single-minded, head-strong, quick-tempered and jealous-to-the-extreme woman who is hell-bent on emotionally suffocating and controlling Alexander,” Deadline.com reported.
Filming reportedly starts right away in Los Angeles, and the ending will be written after the trial is over.
Executive producers Joshua D. Maurer, Alixandre Witlin and Judith Verno have worked on previous projects based on sensational courtroom dramas, including "Drew Peterson: Untouchable" and "The Craigslist Killer."
