NeJame: No truth to rumors of movie deal
9:55 a.m. The attorney representing the parents of Casey Anthony today denied that his clients have struck a deal with LMN for the rights to the story of their daughter and missing granddaughter, Caylee Marie.

"The first time I heard of any such thing was when I received a phone call from a reporter," said attorney Mark NeJame, who is representing George and Cindy Anthony. "We have not uttered one word or had one conversation with anybody from any media outlet...regarding negotiations or a deal."

LMN, formerly known as Lifetime Movie Network, is owned by the Walt Disney Company and the Hearst Corporation.

A publicist for LMN also rebuffed the allegations.

"There is no truth to the rumor that [Lifetime Movie Network] has optioned any rights to the story of Casey Anthony and her daughter Caylee Marie," publicist Neil Schubert wrote in an e-mail to the Orlando Sentinel.
