“Legally Blonde” star Reese Witherspoon reportedly will soon begin work on a movie to be filmed in Georgia.
This project will have none of the frothy fun of the movies that star Witherspoon as Elle the mini-dog clutching sorority girl-turned-lawyer, though.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Witherspoon and Colin Firth will star in “Devil’s Knot,” based on journalist Mara Leveritt’s bestseller about the “West Memphis Three.” The horrifying murders of three 8-year-olds were ascribed to a trio of teenagers, accused of participating in a Satanic ritual. The three were released from prison last year after two decades behind bars.
Work on “Devil’s Knot” starts soon. Serendipitously, Witherspoon, whose past roles include June Carter Cash in “Walk the Line,” may arrive during filming of “Ring of Fire,” another Cash biopic. This one, a Lifetime television movie, stars singer/songwriter Jewel as the wife of Johnny Cash.
