Here’s the logline, per Netflix: In a place called Knockemstiff, Ohio, a forgotten backwoods of this country, where a storm of faith, violence and redemption is brewing. Out of desperation to save his dying wife, Willard Russell turns to prayer which succumbs to sacrifice. This sets protagonist Arvin, Willard’s son (Holland), on his path from bullied kid to a man who knows when to take action. “The Devil All the Time” involves a nefarious cast of characters that is told across two decades.
The screenplay for the film was penned by Antonio and Paulo Campos.
Producers on the film include Randall Poster, Ninestories’ Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker, and Max Born. Annie Marter and Jacob Jaffke will serve as executive producers.
