In 1993, three young men were accused of murdering three eight-year old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. The evidence was very thin, and aside from the smirking behavior of one of the young men, Damien Echols, there was virtually no evidence of wrong-doing. Did the townspeople rely on gossip, mass hysterica, and dislike of outcasts? No one knows, since the men eventually took an Alford Plea.
"The Devil's Knot" is based on the book of the same name by author Mara Leveritt, who squarely points the finger at another suspect.
Stephen Moyer will join fellow castmates Reese Witherspoon("Mud"), Colin Firth("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"), Alessandro Nivola("Janie Jones"), Kris Polaha, Collette Wolfe, Justin Castor, and Kevin Durand.
Moyer has recently completed the horror film "The Barrens", with director Darren Lynn Bousman, while his work on "Evidence", with Olatunde Osunsanmi, is currently in post-production phases.
