2017 Movies: Casting JonBenet (Netflix)
2017 Movies: Casting JonBenet The unsolved death of six-year-old American beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, considered the world’s most sensational child-murder case, has become the subject of a film titled Casting JonBenét, scheduled to launch soon on Netflix.
The streaming service has released a clip for the upcoming documentary, featuring eight little blonde girls wearing matching pageant outfits as they move rapidly to take seats before auditioning for the role of JonBenet. One of them, named Hannah, gets a close-up before the clip ends. Holding a clapperboard in her hands, she introduces herself, says that she’s auditioning for the role of JonBenet Ramsey and then asks “Do you know who killed JonBenet Ramsey?”.
Casting JonBenet will have its premiere on Sunday, at the Sundance Film Festival, and this spring will stream on Netflix and will open in select theaters.
