Who Will Play the LA Weekliers in the Grim Sleeper Film?

We’re not breaking any news here – we’re just saying the Grim Sleeper story is too perfect not to be a movie. The scrappy reporter – indifferent police – idiosyncratic killer. So since it’s inevitable we’d like to make our first casting suggestions:

For the gritty yet girlie editor we’re thinking Holly Hunter as Jill Stewart.

For the dogged Canadian reporter, Christine Pelisek we’re thinking Kate Hudson for looks. Maybe Kate Winslet because she’s…uhm…also foreign.

Who else? Leave the names in the comments.
