Brittany Murphy’s Final Film Finally Seeing Light of Day
Brittany Murphy will be seen in her final film, an independent thriller called Something Wicked, being released in Eugene, Oregon on April 4. Murphy died shortly before Christmas 2009 — although the exact cause of death remains up for debate.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office ruled the Clueless actress’ death accidental, caused by pneumonia and “iron deficiency anemia.” Five months later, Brittany’s husband Simon Monjack, 40, also died of pneumonia and anemia.
In 2013, new questions were raised surrounding Murphy’s death after toxicology results commissioned by the starlet’s father suggested Murphy’s hair showed the presence of 10 heavy metals commonly used in rat poison.
