Casting JonBenét, Netflix's upcoming documentary of the more than 20-year-old unsolved murder of JonBenét Ramsey, is set to have its world premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival. On Thursday, Netflix released the first clip from the doc, which The Hollywood Reporter notes will be a "hybrid" that also examines how the murder and myths over the years have shaped the "attitudes and behavior of successive generations of local parents and children." Director Kitty Green also traveled to the Ramseys' hometown of Boulder, Colorado to speak with residents "through reflections and even performances."
In the clip, eight JonBenét lookalikes of varying heights are waiting to audition to play the 6-year-old, whose body was discovered at her family's home on Christmas Day in 1996. The only lookalike to have a speaking part in the clip is Hannah, who asks, "Do you know who killed JonBenét Ramsey?"
Casting JonBenét, which arrives on Netflix in April, follows the footsteps of last year's The Killing of JonBenét on A&E, Who Killed JonBenét? on NBC's Dateline, JonBenét: An American Murder Mystery on Investigation Discovery, Who Killed JonBenét? on Lifetime, and the docuseries Who Killed JonBenét? on CBS. JonBenét's brother Burke has since sued CBS for $750 million for defamation after the program suggested that he was responsible for her death.
