So, should we give up on Mary Harron ever matching the accomplishment of her first two features, "I Shot Andy Warhol" and "American Psycho"? Because since then, it's been mostly a downward trajectory with lots of TV work, the disappointing "The Notorious Bettie Page" and the forgotten (and not very well received) vampire flick "The Moth Diaries." And now in what must be a career nadir, Harron has retreated to Lifetime to crank out one of their cheapie biopics, "The Anna Nicole Story," ripped from the headlines of six years ago.

Anyway, Agnes Bruckner takes the lead role in the movie that will track the tragic life of the model with all the subtlety of a TMZ news post. The one-minute teaser features no shortage of posing and glamour shots, intercut with alcohol (gasp!), pills (double gasp!) and a sad-eyed kid looking on (sob!). Somehow, Martin Landau, Virginia Madsen and Adam Goldberg got roped into this thing, which if anything should be just as tawdry as Anna Nicole's real life. So maybe, mission accomplished?

Anyway, see for yourself when "The Anna Nicole Story" airs on June 29th. [The Wrap]

    The girl who plays Anna Nicole is so much better looking than Anna Nicole was.

    If Mary Herron were a man, after the one-two punch of "I Shot Andy Warhol" and "American Psycho", she would have been offered "Thor 2," "Captain America 2," or "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" ....

    American Psycho is brilliant.

    I doubt it. Never seen "Andy Warhol," but "American Psycho" is just OK.
