The Gabby Petito murder will be made into a Lifetime movie after her disappearance captured headlines nationwide.
"The Gabby Petito Story" will explore the relationship between Petito and her fiancé Brian Laundrie and what may have gone wrong during their cross-country trip that resulted in her murder, and eventually his suicide.
Actress Thora Birch is playing Petito's mother and she will direct the movie.
It'll be filmed in Utah over the summer and premiere later in the year. It comes as the one-year anniversary of Petito's disappearance and murder approaches.
