LIFETIME TO MAKE NATALEE MOVIE



Lifetime Movie Network has announced pre-production on "The Natalee Holloway Story," slated to air next year.

The ripped-from-the-headlines pic will dramatize the story of the 18-year-old Alabama woman who disappeared in May 2005 during a high school trip to Aruba. Although no body was recovered, it's been widely speculated that she was murdered.

The network will be "working closely" with Holloway's mother, Beth Twitty, said LMN senior veep in charge of original movies, Tanya Lopez, "to raise awareness of how to keep our children safe at all times."

Helen Verno, exec VP of movies and miniseries at Sony Pictures Television, said the telepic will concentrate on the "love story" between mother and daughter.

Verno's own daughter, Judith ("The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story"), will exec produce, along with made-for vet Frank Von Zerneck ("Spring Break Shark Attack").

The Holloway project follows LMN's April dramatization "The Capture of the Green River Killer," its highest-rated telepic to date.

People want to see something different. Aruba might be making a donation to that movie company.

Aruba wants to rebuild their American tourism, this beautiful movie may help. But the injustice issue still looms. American people still see more of the same old Aruba. Aruba needs to fire Oduber and start making new changes in their government and law enforcement.

The moive is the only thing people can remember Natalee. Aruba already destroyed all the police files and evidences of the Natalee case. Aruba has nothing to fear, they are slate clean, said Mos.

Netherlands is at the brink of bankruptcy due to the queen's corruption probe going on right now in Holland. Aruba is a big part of it. The Dutch people can no longer tolerate the queen and Oduber. They want to arrest them over their while collar crimes. There is an amendment in the Dutch constitution that the queen can be arrested for stashing the Kingdom's money for her private larvish spending while the common people of the Kingdom are suffering. That goes to Oduber too. The prime minister's instruction general will prosecute the queen and Oduber at the opening of the full Dutch parliament next week.

The Netherlands and Aruba are begging the EU and US to buy their dried-up central banks. Too bad. Especially Aruba is becoming so notorious in the mind of the American people.

Oduber said was in the dark when judge Rik Smid released Joran from jail. He promised that he will arrest Joran when he comes back to Aruba to visit his parents. Fair enough? But Aruba can't do it without the American tourists coming and spending money on the island.

The PVD campaign critized Oduber's government hotels buy-up plan. Oduber has been covering up for the Queen Beatrix for her abandoned hotel resort constructions in Aruba last five years and cost billions of the Dutch taxpayers' money.

The global investors are panic and sell off all the Dutch airline stocks. The Dutch airline is facing high fuel cost problem and stop the daily flights from Amsterdam to Aruba. Aruba is totally got cut off from Europe

The Dutch people lose faith in Queen Beatrix and the Kingdom's financial system. The stocks of the Dutch oil company and airline international are quickly dumped by the Asian investers and banks. The financial experts said the problem is Aruba. Their corrupt dirty police cause the no confidence in the Dutch government and institutions. The only obvious solutions is arrest Joran right now and put him behind bars to stop the tide of destruction of the Dutch Kingdom.

The Dutch tax commissioner accused the Queen was claiming her per diems when she was staying at Oduber's mansion in her recent Aruba visits. The commissioner said the queen is a petty thief stealing money from the Dutch taxpayers.

Queen Beatrix is over 70 years old. By Dutch law, she has to sell off all her oil and airline company stocks and use the money to help the poor and homeless childrens.

Interesting that out of 13 comments, only two were about the LMN movie about Natalee.

With Beth assisting, this should be a lovely movie about a mother-daughter relationship. I think that LMN will ensure it will be proper and a fitting tribute to Beth and Natalee.

Netherlands was abandoned by the EU rescue package this afternoon due to the Queen Beatrix's bad spending behavior in Aruba. Aruba had swallowed almost a billion dollars from the Kingdom in the name of tourism developments.
