First Look At Colin Firth In The West Memphis Three Drama Devil’s Knot

Based on the true story of the West Memphis Three – which also led to four documentary features – Devil’s Knot is the latest film from director Atom Egoyan.

The real-life story of the West Memphis Three is truly horrifying and could definitely make for a very powerful and emotional feature film. The documentaries – Paradise Lost parts 1,2 and 3 and West of Memphis – certainly are all that and more.

Today we got our first look at Colin Firth in the Devil’s Knot, thanks to Entertainment Weekly. Firth plays Ron Lax, a Memphis private investigator who was instrumental in digging up some incredibly important DNA.
