Reese Witherspoon is in Atlanta to film a movie called “Devil’s Knot,” about the bizarre “West Memphis Three” case.
She and director Atom Egoyan dined at The Palm in Buckhead Tuesday night. She was spotted the next day at Matthews Cafeteria in Tucker.
“Devil’s Knot” also stars Colin Firth, and Variety reports that Seth Meriwether, a 17-year-old from Montgomery, Ala. has just been cast as one of the defendants. Meriwether also filmed a role in “Trouble With the Curve,” the baseball-themed movie starring Clint Eastwood, Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams that filmed in metro Atlanta and beyond earlier this year. We’re sure to be hearing more about him in the future.
Work on “Devil’s Knot” begins soon, and we hear it’ll be filming in Stone Mountain and Cartersville. More details as they’re available.
