Posted Wednesday August 13, 2014 4:13 PM GMT

Back in December 2009 Brittany Murphy tragically passed away, and next month Lifetime will air a special biopic based on the late actress’ life.

Per a Hollywood Reporter report, “The Brittany Murphy Story” will focus on Murphy’s upbringing as well as her struggle to succeed in Hollywood.

And probably most controversially, the two-hour project will deal with the strange circumstances of Brittany’s death, which was ruled as caused by pneumonia.

Murphy will be played by Amanda Fuller, while Sherilyn Fenn will handle the role of Brittany’s mother Sharon. “The Brittany Murphy Story” will air on September 6th.
