The new Lifetime movie trailer for Menendez: Blood Brothers has us quite shook. That’s because the cast stars the legendary Courtney Love as Kitty Menendez and Nico Tortorella as her son and killer.
Menendez: Blood Brothers tells the true story of the infamous killings of Jose and Kitty Menendez, murdered by their own sons, Lyle and Erik, in 1989. Lifetime says:
“The movie explores the inner lives and motivation behind the murders of entertainment executive Jose Menendez and his wife Kitty at the hands of their sons Lyle and Erik in 1989. The movie will also reveal new details about the extreme abuse the brothers endured at their father’s hands, all while their mother looked the other way.”
Since it’s Lifetime, we can expect some serious tears, screaming, and weird sex stuff with our family drama, and with such an unexpectedly high profile cast, we’re already cancelling plans to make room for the premiere on June 11.
Myko Olivier and Benito Martinez round out the rest of the cast, while Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, known for Party Monster and their Robert Mapplethorpe HBO documentary, produce and direct.
