With shooting starting last week in Georgia, Atom Egoyan’s West Memphis Three drama “The Devi’s Knot” added some new cast members to the already extensive ensemble.

First up, the “True Blood” star Stephen Moyer is playing prosecutor John Fogelman and is joining the shoot immediately to take advantage of the hole he has in his schedule due to the HBO vampire drama. Moyer hasn’t yet made an impression on the big screen, but we think this bodes well for him as the material has plenty of dramatic potential. “Lost” baddie Kevin Durand (who you'll see in the upcoming "Cosmopolis") is playing John Mark Byers, a role which, if you’re familiar with the “Paradise Lost” trilogy, will likely take advantage of Durand’s penchant for playing smarmy villains. And lastly, character actor Rex Linn, who you may know from the cancelled “CSI: Miami” and Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming “southern” “Django Unchained,” won’t stray too far from his 'CSI' role as he plays the lead investigator of the 1993 case, Chief Inspector Gary Gitchell.

Given the pedigree involved and the source material, we’re pretty excited to see how the film turns out. Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth, Amy Ryan, Michael Gladis, Bruce Greenwood, Matt Letscher, Mireille Enos, Dane DeHaan, Alessandro Nivola, and Collete Wolfe round out the cast.
