Lights, camera, West Memphis Three action

Posted By on Thu, Jul 12, 2012 at 9:37 AM


Mara Leveritt has been in Cartersville, Ga., where filming is underway of the movie "Devil's Knot," based on her book about the West Memphis Three case. She sends a photo from the set in a historic courthouse that will stand in for the Arkansas judicial setting. Nothing of Reese Witherspoon, who's among the stars, but this photo shows Pam Hicks (left), mother of Stevie Branch, one of the three eight-year-olds killed in 1993, and Jason Baldwin, one of the three teens convicted in the case and set free last year. With them is Baldwin's friend Holly Ballard, who struck up a correspondence with him while he was in prison.
