The Boys on the Tracks heading to the Big screen...
"The Tracks" will tell the story of Linda Ives'
effort to learn about the death of her teen son on railroad tracks in
Saline County. As long-time Arkies know, the story (much of it covered
over the years by Leveritt's reporting in the Arkansas Times)
went in many tangents, touching everything from a discredited medical
examiner to a Governor Bill Clinton and future president, with offshoots to a CIA
drugs-for-arms deal and more more more!
Producer is Elizabeth Fowler, who's producing the movie "Devil's
Knot" based on Leveritt's book about the West Memphis Three case, which
stars Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon. She's quoted in Variety as saying the story in "The Tracks" plays out "like a Grisham thriller."
