Peter Jackson & Fran Walsh Funding Hunt For Actual Killers; HBO Wouldn't Mind A 'Paradise Lost 4'For more than fifteen years, director Joe Berlinger (along with Bruce Sinofsky) has been tracking the tragic story of the West Memphis Three in his "Paradise Lost" documentaries, and late last week bittersweet justice was served: Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelle were freed under under a plea deal that will still leave with them the stain of a guilty verdict (all orchestrated so they can't sue for wrongful prosecution) even though they had nothing to do with the horrific child murders.
