A Hollywood publicist has urged Helen Mirren to pull out of a previously reported new film based on the murder trial of legendary producer Phil Spector. Edward Lozzi is working on behalf of the family of Lana Clarkson, the one time actress Spector was found guilty of shooting dead. They fear that the film, which will feature Al Pacino playing the producer, will paint Spector in a sympathetic light.

Mirren is due to play one of the music maker’s defence lawyers. According to reports, the actress was told she could find herself being blocked from Hollywood awards if she takes part in the film. Lozzi is also planning a boycott of the film’s producers HBO. But so far the threats have had no effect on Mirren. A rep for the British actress said: “She’s in the movie. She’s not dropping out. That’s all she’s saying”.
