Sensitive Rental Chain Yanks Brittany Murphy DVD Art

Deadline cover is too much?

Next to the Tiger Woods b.s., every mainstream news outlet is saturating the airwaves with every fine detail of Brittany Murphy’s death. Today, however, something came across my desk that made me say “whoops.”

Today, E! (who else?) is reporting DVD rental company Redbox is pulling the box art for the recently released horror film Deadline.


Oh, because it features Murphy dead in a bathtub, hitting a bit too close to her actual passing in which she was found in the bathroom on Sunday morning. Fair enough. Will Redbox succeed in yanking all of the art? They’re going to try.

Deadline was distributed by First Look Home Entertainment.
