West Memphis Three Movie 

Variety reported last week that Dimension films has purchased the rights to Mara Leveritt’s book Devil's Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three, which covered the murder of three young boys and the controversial conviction of three teens in West Memphis in the early 90s. The film will be directed by Scott Derrickson and and written by Paul Harris Boardman, who worked together on The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Read the story here.

On Sunday, former Misfit member Michale Graves will stop by the Complex for the Almost Home Tour concert in support of Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley Jr., and Jason Baldwin, the men convicted of the murders who are also known as the West Memphis Three. Read the story.
