And on top of all of this, it's like, "Oh yeah, I'm having a baby!"

Alessandro Nivola Joins Reese Witherspoon For West Memphis 3 Drama Devil's Knot

The bizarre criminal case of the West Memphis Three, who were falsely convicted for the grisly murder of three children, has fueled numerous documentaries, including West of Memphis, Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills, Paradise Lost 2: Revelations, and Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory which ended with the eventual release of its subjects, Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, after 18 years in prison. In the wake of their release, a pair of narrative dramas have rolled into development. One produced by Johnny Depp is to be based on Echols' yet-to-be published memoir; the other helmed by Atom Egoyan, is inspired by Mara Leveritt's true crime novel Devil's Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three.

The latter of these is now gearing up for production, having landed Oscar-winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth to star. Deadline reports Alessandro Nivola (Face/Off, Laurel Canyon) has recently signed on to play Terry Hobbs, stepfather of one of the murdered children, and husband to Witherspoon's character, Pam. Their relationship is said to be pivotal to Egoyan's exploration of this tragic murder mystery, which gives an intriguing insight to what the filmmaker behind The Sweet Hereafter has in mind for Devil's Knot.
I'm actually pretty pumped about this. Reese and Alessandro starred in "Best Laid Plans" together, which was actually really good - just disturbing. Nice casting.

I wouldn't have either if it wouldn't be for his movie with Reese. You should watch it. It's CRAZY.

Three Actors Join Reese Witherspoon And Colin Firth In Devil's Knot

Collette Wolfe has only been acting in films since 2006, but looking at the list of movies that she's done has revealed a small pattern. While she has done more comedy features than anything and regularly plays sweet, nice characters, she has shown a proclivity towards taking parts in projects that look at the darker side of life. In addition to working multiple times with director Jody Hill - who basically lives on the dark side - she was also recently seen playing Patton Oswalt's sad sister in Jason Reitman's Young Adult. Now, however, she's ready to make her turn towards drama and, surprise, surprise, it's a seriously dark story.

Deadline has learned that Wolfe has joined the cast of Devil's Knot, the film about the famed West Memphis Three. Kris Polaha, who played Henry Hutler on Ringer, and part-time TV player Justin Castor have also signed on for parts. The three actors join Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Mireille Enos, Alessandro Nivola and Kristopher Higgins as part of the cast. Atom Egoyan is helming the thriller, which is based on the true story about a group of Arkansas teenagers who were convicted of murdering three children back in 1993 despite there being no evidence pointing to their involvement. The three teens, Jessie Misskelley Jr., Jason Baldwin and Damien Echols, were released last year. Egoyan last directed the drama Chloe, which starred Amanda Seyfried, Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson.

Wolfe will play Firth's character's assistant in the film, a young woman named Glori Shettles, while Polaha will be playing public defender Val Price. Castor will play the role of Baldwin, one of the convicted kids. The film is based on the 2003 book "Devil's Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three" by Mara Leveritt. The site doesn't mention when production is scheduled to begin.
I love Kris because of Life Unexpected! I approve.

It really is. And it can't go wrong with Reese and Colin, IMO.

An Evening With Reese Witherspoon Hosted By The Gene Siskel Film Center

The previously announced ‘An Evening With Reese Witherspoon Hosted By The Gene Siskel Film Center’ took place in Chicago last night, and Reese accepted her award looking chic in a little navy blue dress. Election director Alexander Payne presented the award to her, and Reese told reporters before that he “was a big champion for me early on, and said, ‘That’s the girl I want in my movie,’ so I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for him. And we’ve subsequently become very close friends.”
