First Look At Reese Witherspoon in “Devil’s Knot”
“Devil’s Knot,” which hits theaters on May 9, is the true story of the infamous West Memphis 3 murder case, in which three teens were wrongly convicted of the deaths of three children. Reese Witherspoon stars as a mother of one of the victims. “The Insider” has your first look at the film ― check out this video for the sneak peek, and tune in to “The Insider With Yahoo” for the latest in entertainment news.
West Memphis Three drama ‘Devil’s Knot’ with Reese Witherspoon sets release date
Devil’s Knot, Atom Egoyan’s docudrama about the West Memphis Three, will arrive in U.S. theaters and on VOD on May 9th. Starring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth, the movie recounts the tragic true story of three missing boys in the religious community of Memphis, Ark., and the frenzied rush to justice that condemned three teenagers to prison for a horrific crime. The West Memphis Three — Damien Echols, Jesse Misskelley Jr., and Jason Baldwin — were convicted in 1994 of murdering the three boys, in part because of hyped suspicions that the trio were satanists. Doubts about the three men’s guilt were widespread, though, and their plight became a cause célèbre that resulted in several documentaries that shed new light on the case.
In the film, Witherspoon plays the mother of one of the victims, but her anguish gives way to doubts as community fears and hysteria gain momentum leading up to the trial. Firth plays Ron Lax, the private investigator who becomes suspicious of the community’s rush to judgment and pokes holes in the evidence used to convict the teenagers.

It’s been a while since a proper update here, due to my busy few months, so it’s time to play catch-up! First up: some news on Reese’s upcoming drama movie Devil’s Knot. The first trailer for the movie was released in late November, and you can watch it below. We also have a new official poster for the film – previewed to the left, and in full-size in the Gallery.
As for a US release date, it is going to be in the 2nd quarter of 2014, according to the article posted below. That would be an April/May/June date, I guess. A Canadian poster – also in the Gallery – lists the films release date there as January 24th. IMDB list a few other international release dates here.
I’m looking forward to seeing more about this movie in the coming months!

Reese attended the Toronto Film Festival last night for the world premiere of her new movie Devil’s Knot. She was joined by her director Atom Egoyan, and co-star Colin Firth, Stephen Moyer and Mirielle Enos. Reese wowed on the red carpet wearing a Jason Wu print dress with a low v-neck, a Jason Wu ‘Karlie’ clutch, and green Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ heels. She looks fabulous! Over 90 HQ photos from the red carpet and after-party are up in our Gallery for your viewing pleasure.
Reese’s make-up artist Mai Quynh talked In Style through the products she used to give Reese such a fresh face for the night here. Toronto Life also have a few additional pics from the event. Finally, further down this post are a few reviews of the film – as you can read, they are mixed. I particularly liked the one from Variety about Reese’s performance.

Devil’s Knot Atom Egoyan, USA World Premiere
A haunting true mystery about the infamous killing of three children in a small Arkansas town. The police charge and convict three teens, aka the West Memphis Three, for committing the murders during an alleged satanic ritual, but a mother and investigator suspect that the truth may be even worse. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Kevin Durand, Bruce Greenwood, Mireille Enos, Dane DeHaan and Stephen Moyer.
The Hollywood Reporter have a new still from The Devil’s Knot, showing Reese and Alessandro Nivola (I think?) in a worried embrace.
There is also a new Facebook page for the film, which teases that they are expecting to premiere the movie at the Toronto Film Festival in September!
Cannes: Reese Witherspoon Stars in ‘Devil’s Knot’
With the Cannes Film Festival nearing the finishing stretch, the independent film business is turning its attention to the fall festival circuit. One title that’s likely to make an appearance is Atom Egoyan’s much-anticipated Devil’s Knot, loosely based on Mara Leveritt’s 2002 nonfiction book about the infamous West Memphis Three case.
From Worldview Entertainment, the crime thriller stars Reese Witherspoon as Pam Hobbs, the mother of Steve Branch, one of the three children savagely murdered in Arkansas in 1993. Alessandro Nivola plays Terry Hobbs, her husband and Steve’s stepfather. Colin Firth also stars.
The notorious case sparked national headlines when Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr. were convicted and sentenced to life in prison. After new forensic evidence was put forth and the case became a cause celebre, the three were released after serving 18 years.
CAA is selling North American rights to Devil’s Knot, while The Weinstein Co. is handling international sales. Producers are Elizabeth Fowler, Richard Saperstein, Clark Peterson and Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow. Worldview’s Molly Conners, Sarah Johnson Redlich, Maria Cestone and Hoyt David Morgan are executive producing.
View The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive image from the film above.
The first poster and stills for The Devil’s Knot were released by the films production company during the American Film Market back in November. I am only now reading about this – sorry! The still featuring Reese is a close-up shot of her looking forelorn, and you can view it in our Gallery. See the poster and the still of Colin Firth at Bloody Disgusting.
I’ve also come across a journalist’s diary from the time he spent on the set, and you can read his 4 entries here.
I’ve added additional HQ photos from the first two days of Devil’s Knot filming that we had pictures from.
Reese has been snapped at work on the film again since then, although unfortuntely we are unable to post the photos here So instead I have some links for you: see Reese on set of Devil’s Knot on June 30th here, here and here; and on the set on July 2nd here, here and here. SocialiteLife have some pics from both days here.

Comments Off on Stephen Moyer joins “Devil’s Knot”
“True Blood” star Stephen Moyer has joined the cast of Atom Egoyan’s Devil’s Knot, Deadline reports. He joins Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Alessandro Nivola, Kris Polaha, Collette Wolfe, Justin Castor and Kevin Durand in the narrative take on the West Memphis Three.
Released from prison earlier this year after nearly two decades, Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. and Jason Baldwin were convicted of the murder of three eight-year-old boys in 1993. Their trial was the subject of the Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky documentary, Paradise Lost that brought national media attention to the trial and its outcome.
Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter, Chloe) is basing his take off the book “Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three” by Mara Leveritt.
In the narrative version, Witherspoon will play Pam Hobbs, the mother of one of the original victims while Firth will star as Ron Lax, a private investigator called in for the case. Moyer will play prosecutor John Fogelman.
Reese is now in Atlanta, and has been filming her first scenes for Devil’s Knot! She was spotted on set on Monday and Tuesday of this week, and I’m pretty sure the guy with her on June 25th is Alessandro Nivola, who will be playing her husband. Interestingly, in a new interview director Atom Egoyan said his film will focus on the mother of one of the victims – that’s Reese’s character Pam Hobbs – and the private investigator for the suspects’ defense team (Colin Firth), so it sounds like Reese’s part will be big.
Check out the first photos from the set in our Gallery, and scroll on down this post for that interview with Egoyam plus a snippet about Reese’s time in Atlanta so far.
