Netflix says principal photography on its film adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock’s 2011 novel, The Devil All The Time, will start next month with Tom Holland, Chris Evans and Robert Pattinson all confirmed to star.
The cast also includes Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Jane Eyre, Crimson Peak), Bill Skarsgard (It, Castle Rock), Eliza Scanlen (Sharp Objects, Little Women) and Tony Award Winner Gabriel Ebert (Ricki and the Flash).
In a place called Knockemstiff, Ohio, a forgotten backwoods of this country – a storm of faith, violence and redemption brews. Out of desperation to save his dying wife, Willard Russell turns to prayer which succumbs to sacrifice.
This sets our protagonist Arvin, Willard’s son, on his path from bullied kid to a man who knows when to take action.
The Devil All the Time is a finely woven “mid-western” gothic tale involving a nefarious cast of characters: a serial killer couple, a faith-testing preacher, and a corrupt local sheriff in a story that is told across two decades.
