EXCLUSIVE: Real-life couple Anne Heche and James Tupper are set to star in the Lifetime original movie Girl Fight, their first on-screen pairing since the ABC dramedy series Men In Trees on which they met. Inspired by the true story of Florida cheerleader Victoria Lindsay, Girl Fight recounts the harrowing story of Tori Lindsay, a 16-year-old, stellar high school student whose life spirals downward when her “friends” brutally beat her up and then upload a video of the attack onto the Internet. Heche and Tupper will play the girl’s parents. David Craig (Flight 93), Linda Berman (Buffalo Dreams) and Rocky Lang (White Squall) are executive producing the movie, which was written by Benita Garvin and Teena Booth.
