TRUE BLOOD star Stephen Moyer has joined the cast of Atom Egoyan’s forthcoming feature DEVIL’S KNOT. The film will depict the horrifying true-life tale of three young boys, murdered in a satanic ritual in the Robin Hood Hills in Memphis during 1993. The case and subsequent controversial trial of teenage boys – Damien Echols, Jesse Miskelly and Jason Baldwin – was brought to worldwide attention by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky’s unforgettable PARADISE LOST documentaries.
The film will be based on Mara Leveritt’s novel ‘Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three’. Over the last few weeks, THN has brought you news of the confirmed main cast that includes Oscar-winners, Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth.

British actor Moyer, has been a mainstay on HBO’s hit vampire series TRUE BLOOD since it first aired in 2008. He has also appeared as a supporting player in PRIEST but has yet to sink his teeth into a significant film role outside of the cult bloodsucker show. Moyer also has the found-footage thriller EVIDENCE, due later this year.
