Set for release on May 9 is Image Entertaiment’s crime thriller Devil’s Knot, which now has an official trailer.
Devil’s Knot, about the West Memphis Three killings, stars Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon. The film, which received mostly mixed reviews at Toronto, is based on Mara Leveritt’s book “Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three.”
“Devil’s Knot tells the compelling story of three teenagers accused of the brutal 1993 murder of three 8-year old boys in Memphis, Ark. – two of them sentenced to life imprisonment and one to death. The film explores the lives of deeply misunderstood outsiders, their families and communities, and their darkest fantasies. The conviction of the West Memphis Three – Damien Echols, Jesse Misskelley, Jr., and Jason Baldwin – riled the American justice system, shocked a tightly knit religious town and outraged the nation.“
The film was written by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and Paul Harris Boardman, who also produced alongside Elizabeth Fowler, Richard Saperstein, Clark Peterson and Christopher Woodrow of Worldview Entertainment.
