Brittany Murphy's funeral will be held on Christmas Eve (VIDEO)

Brittany Murphy's final resting place to be at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills

Brittany Murphy has done so many beautiful films like: Across the Hall (2009), Deadline (2009), The Expendables (2010) and many more.

Footage has been released of Brittany Murphy's last film role before her untimely death on Dec. 20. In "Abandoned,"

Brittany is Mary, a woman whose husband Kevin (Dean Cain) goes into the hospital for surgery and never comes out. When the hospital has no record of her husband ever being there, she is caught up in a deadly conspiracy. "Abandoned" is listed as being released sometime in 2010. There is no word yet as to what the exact date might be.

Media outlets, including the first source to break news of Brittany Murphy's shocking death), are reporting that her body will be laid to rest on Christmas Eve at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills. Christmas Eve was Murphy's favorite time of the year and her family has decided to honor her favorite holiday by saying their farewell in a ceremony today. Her body arrived at the cemetery early yesterday afternoon to prepare for her burial.

The funeral itself will be "strictly private" restricted to only close family and friends, but there may be a more public remembrance ceremony later at a later date for those who want to pay respects to the actress's life.

"The working plan is to have a small private family service in the next few days and then a larger memorial service for a larger group early in the new year," a source said told People. One person who will not be attending the small funeral today is Murphy's biological father, Angelo Bertolotti. The two apparently had a very estranged relationship for the past eight years and he was not invited to the private ceremony.

Though there is still speculation involving Murphy's weight loss and state of health at the time of her death and the autopsy report was released, the toxicology results will not be available for several weeks. In the meantime the LAPD has their work cut out for them as they launch an investigation into how detailed and confidential information about Britany Murphy's death was leaked to the media.
