Amanda and her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were found guilty of killing British student Meredith Kercher in 2009 after her body was discovered in the home she shared with Amanda. Their guilty verdicts were overturned in 2011 and a retrial is now underway in Florence without Amanda or Raffaele present.
Not exactly an easy first film for a rookie actress. While Cara won't be taking the lead role, we can imagine it'll be an emotional roller coaster for the happy-go-lucky model.
A source reportedly told The Mirror: "It doesn't look like Cara will be playing Foxy Knoxy but she will have a major role, as the director wants to focus on events surrounding the trial and the people whose lives have been affected by it.
"Getting Cara is a real coup for the film but is also brilliant for her career. It proves she's an in-demand actress and will help to boost her career Stateside.
"She has been thinking about relocating there and, with big film offers coming in, it's looking likely movies will soon be Cara's main focus."
While we wait to find out more details, enjoy Cara's style file...
