PERUGIA, ITALY - NOVEMBER 24: Amanda Knox (C) is led away from Perugia's Court of Appeal by police officers after the first session of her appeal against her murder conviction on November 24, 2010 in Perugia, Italy. American Amanda Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of the murder of Ms Knox's former British flatmate Meredith Kercher in 2007. Their initial trial completed in December 2009 with Knox and Sollecito receiving sentences of 26 and 25 years respectively. Rudy Guede, an unemployed man from Ivory Coast, was also convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher. The case is also forming the basis for a film currently being shot in Italy entitled 'The Amanda Knox Story', with American actress Hayden Panettiere cast as Amanda Knox.

SEATTLE—Amanda Knox’s memoir and interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer will go on as planned, despite an Italian court overturning her 2011 murder acquittal.

Italy’s highest criminal court ordered a new trial for Knox and former Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito on Tuesday, overturning their acquittals in the gruesome slaying of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher.
Spokesman David Ford says an ABC News Primetime Special scheduled to air April 30 is moving forward as planned. It will be the first in-depth interview Knox has given since returning to Seattle.
Knox also has a memoir, “Waiting to Be Heard,” due out on the same day as her television interview. Based on pre-orders, the book’s ranking on Amazon.com moved from just above 2,400 Tuesday morning to 470 Tuesday afternoon.
HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis says the book plans have not changed.
