Lana Clarkson - Lana Clarkson's Pals Fear David Mamet's Spector Movie

Friends of tragic actress Lana Clarkson fear playwright David Mamet will portray Phil Spector with "sympathy" in an upcoming movie after he reportedly insisted the legendary music producer is innocent of her murder.
Mamet sensationally told Britain's Financial Times earlier this month (Jun11) he believes the pioneering producer was wrongly convicted of shooting Clarkson dead at his mansion in Alhambra, California in 2003.
Mamet, who is currently working on a TV movie of Spector's life story, told the publication, "I don't think he's guilty. I definitely think there is reasonable doubt... They should never have sent him away. Whether he did it or not, we'll never know but if he'd just been a regular citizen, they never would have indicted him."
Now friends of Clarkson have blasted Mamet's comments, branding them "mind-boggling and wrong in so many ways".
In a letter to the writer, obtained by Tmz.com, Clarkson's pals told of their fears that "the loathsome, lying, gun-abusing convicted murderer of our friend Lana Clarkson will be portrayed with some kind of sympathy... Please refrain from rewriting history for 'creative license'."
Spector is serving 19 years to life after he was convicted of the murder in 2009. Al Pacino will portray the music producer in the new movie.
