Brooke Shields to Star in Movie Based on Kelo v. City of New London

The Hartford Courant reports that Brooke Shields will star as Susette Kelo in a TV movie based on the notorious Kelo v. City of New London property rights case [HT: Cory Andrews]. The movie will be based on Jeff Benedict’s excellent journalistic account of the case, Little Pink House: A True Story of Defiance and Courage, which I reviewed here.

UPDATE: Timothy Sandefur notes that the really important question is who will play the amici. Also, who is going to play the authors of amicus briefs cited by the Court, such as this one? We all know that these characters should be the real heroes of the story! I’m holding out for Brad Pitt to play me.
