Amy Berg's West Memphis Three doc "West of Memphis" played Sundance and Toronto 2012 before being shortlisted for the Best Documentary Oscar, and now the director is entering the narrative realm with "Every Secret Thing," penned by Nicole Holofcener ("Please Give," "Friends with Money"). The script is based on Laura Lippmann's book, which -- like "West of Memphis" -- deals with murder and blame. Dakota Fanning and Danielle Macdonald are joining the cast, which includes previously announced stars Diane Lane and Elizabeth Banks. The pair will play two girls who are convicted of murdering a baby at age 11, and then released from incarceration at age 18. Read the full synopsis below. Frances McDormand is producing with Likely Story, and Merced Media Partners, Palmstar Media Capital, and Hyde Park International are serving as exec producers. Shooting is set to begin March 25.
