The first of two planned movie projects about actor Robert Blake's slain wife Bonny Lee Bakley is set to start shooting next month (DEC04).

Blake's former manager LARRY THOMPSON is producing the TV movie DYING FOR STARDOM: THE ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE TRUE STORY OF BONNY LEE BAKLEY after agreeing rights with Bakley's sister MARGARET.

A second untitled film, based on Bakley's diaries, is set to start filming in 2005.

The producer of that project, LARRY GARRISON, is hoping to persuade KATE HUDSON and Goldie Hawn to play the two ages of Bakley, who was shot dead in Blake's car in May, 2001.
