Sony Pictures Classics Acquires ‘West of Memphis’

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired worldwide rights to Amy Berg’s docu about the West Memphis Three, West of Memphis,” which was produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, as well as first-time producers Damien Echols and Lorri Davis, says Variety.

The pic, which debuted at Sundance, “chronicles the new investigation surrounding the West Memphis Three, which ultimately broke the case open and led to the freedom of three innocent men: Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr.

Berg’s film examines the flawed police investigation into the 1993 murders of three young boys in West Memphis, Arkansas, and reveals details of Echols’ fight to save his life while sitting on death row for 18 years.
