'Anna Nicole' TV movie gets summer premiere date on Lifetime

agnes-bruckner-anna-nicole-smith-lifetime-movie-gi.jpg"Anna Nicole," Lifetime's TV movie about the weird and tragic life of model and sometimes actress Anna Nicole Smith, is set for a June 29 premiere.

Starring Agnes Bruckner ("Private Practice") as Playboy playmate and tabloid fixture Smith, the film also stars Oscar winner Martin Landau as Smith's 89-year-old oil tycoon husband, Oscar nominee Virginia Madsen as Smith's mother, Adam Goldberg as lawyer Howard K. Stern and Cary Elwes as Smith's unimpressed son-in-law.

But the most intriguing name involved is director Mary Harron, who was behind contemporary cult classic "American Psycho" and unusual bio-pics "I Shot Andy Warhol" and "The Notorious Bettie Page." Maybe "Anna Nicole" won't turn out to be a laughable "Liz & Dick" style camp-fest after all.

Lifetime had already set the premiere of quickie movie "Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret" for one week earlier, on Saturday, June 22.
