"The Killing's" Mireille Enos ties The Devil's Knot with Firth & Witherspoon

05.30.2012by: Jake Dee

Proudly will I continue to call attention to THE DEVIL'S KNOT, the feature version of the infamous West Memphis 3 case. A couple weeks ago the film got the official go ahead out of Cannes, and now it seems a new face will be joining Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon in the flick. Peep it...

According to Deadline, "The Killing" star Mireille Enos (pictured) is set to tie the KNOT. She will play Vicki Hutcheson, the mother of an 8-year-old boy who lives in a run-down house in West Memphis. She becomes an important witness in the murder trial of Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley for the killing of three 8-year-old boys found hog-tied in a drainage ditch. Hutcheson, it becomes apparent to investigators, could be the only link between Echols and Misskelley.

With Atom Egoyan filming this summer in Georgia:

Firth will play Ron Lax, a private investigator who was the first pro bono supporter of the defendants as they headed to trial in 1993. Lax built one of the most prominent private investigative firms in the Southeast, and offered his services for free to the defendants, who at the time were reviled because of the heinous nature of the crime and the sensationalized reports about devil worship and ritualistic sacrifice.
