Pam Hobbs Steve Branch Mother

December 18, 2011 by staff 

Pam Hobbs Steve Branch Mother, The West Memphis Three are three men who were arrested as teenagers in Arkansas in 1994 for the murders of three young boys. Their collective case became an international controversy that attracted the support of musicians, filmmakers and other celebrities (such as Metallica, Henry Rollins and Peter Jackson). The ongoing plight of the West Memphis Three was also depicted in the three Paradise Lost documentary feature films. This August, the West Memphis Three were finally released from prison. Soon after, Canadian director Atom Egoyan (Ararat, Where the Truth Lies, The Sweet Hereafter) signed on to direct Devil’s Knot, an independent drama about the West Memphis Three written by screenwriters Scott Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman, the screenwriting team behind The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Urban Legends: Final Cut. The West Memphis Three themselves, however, haven’t been cast yet, possibly because, as prisoners, they could not sell their life rights until very recently. Instead, the first person to join the cast of Devil’s Knot was Reese Witherspoon, who signed on this week to costar as Pam Hobbs, the mother of one of the young victims, who intially believes the West Memphis Three to be guilty until the evidence persuades her otherwise. Filming of Devil’s Knot is scheduled to start in the summer of 2012.
