As far as I know, it's still happening. It's status is "pre-production" on IMDB.

I'm really interested in the plot, so I hope it happens.

A drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane (Reese Witherspoon), her phenomenal success in the 1950s and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband (Ryan Reynolds), who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

I... am super pumped about this. I looooove Colin Firth.

Quote:
Colin Firth joins Reese Witherspoon in West Memphis Three film

Colin Firth will join Reese Witherspoon in a controversial new biopic about the real-life murders of three Arkansas boy scouts.

The actress signed up last year to portray one of the slain boy's mothers in the adaptation of journalist Mara Leveritt's 2002 book Devil's Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three, and now executives at Worldview Entertainment, the production company behind the film, have revealed Firth will be part of the cast too.

The announcement was made at the Cannes Film Festival in France this week, although it is not yet known what part Firth will play.

Devil's Knot will be set in 1993, when the three kids were stabbed to death. Then-teenagers Damon Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. and Jason Baldwin were convicted for the bloody crimes in 1994 and imprisoned. The West Memphis natives, who maintained their innocence, were freed in 2011 after officials agreed there was significant doubt about their guilt.

Miskelley, Jr. and Baldwin will serve as co-executive producers on the project, which will be directed by Atom Egoyan.

Principal photography will begin in Georgia in June, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Oh man I can't wait for this! This whole thing was such a huge deal (I lived in Memphis at the time) and this movie is going to be amazing.

Excited Colin Firth has joined as well!

I saw that filming begins in June. I wonder if they will just shoot around her pregnancy, like in Vanity Fair? Or if they will wait to film her scenes until later?

I saw that, too, Em. I'm not sure. I guess we'll see soon enough.

Yeah, that should be interesting. I'm wondering if they'll do half & half.

I have to apologize for DB but reviews are in from Cannes and they are great...

Quote:
CANNES, France -- Looking a little like a kid caught swiping some candy, Jeff Nichols said what everyone in the room was thinking -- there is a lot of Mark Twain in his new movie "Mud."

[...]

At 33 and with just two features under his belt, Nichols came to Cannes as the youngest and least experienced of the North American directors, an estimable group that includes Wes Anderson, Lee Daniels and David Cronenberg. But he emerged with perhaps the best-received film of them all with "Mud," a coming-of-age drama graced occasionally by thriller touches.

[...]

Unlike the escaped slave of Twain's Jim, Mud, it turns out, is on the run because he committed a crime to win the heart of longtime romantic interest Juniper (Reese Witherspoon, somber and un-Reese-like), who has never fully returned his devotion.
From LA Times - Also for what it's worth, because I think we talked about being a little concerned about Matthew McConaughey, the article also quote someone calling him a "revelation"

Quote:
(Reuters) - "Mud", a touching coming-of-age tale set on the Mississippi River and starring Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, brought the Cannes film festival competition to a close on Saturday, earning warm applause at a press screening.
Reuters

Yay!
