Simon Killer and Christine director Antonio Campos has assembled an impressive cast for his next project, with Deadline reporting that Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Chris Evans, Mia Wasikowska and Tracey Letts are all in talks to star in The Devil All the Time.
Based upon Donald Ray Pollock’s 2011 novel, The Devil All the Time takes place in Knockemstiff, Ohio, “a forgotten backwoods of this country – a storm of faith, violence and redemption brews. Out of desperation to save his dying wife, our protagonist Willard Russell turns to prayer which succumbs to sacrifice. His son Arvin (Holland) is growing from a kid bullied at school into a man who knows when to take action. The cast of characters includes a serial killer couple, a faith-testing preacher and a corrupt local sheriff (Evans) in a story told across two decades.”
Campos, who recently directed an executive produced USA Network’s The Sinner, is also attached to helm a prequel to The Omen for 20th Century Fox, as well as the horror film Splitfoot for Fox Searchlight.
