Film   /   New Project   /   Trial By Fire

Young actress Jade Pettyjohn (Pure Genius, School of Rock) has been cast as Laura Dern’s daughter in Trial by Fire, a fact-based drama from director Ed Zwick. Jack O’Connell also co-stars in the film, which follows Cameron Todd Willingham, a poor, uneducated heavy metal devotee who was convicted of triple homicide in the arson deaths of his three small children and spent 12 years on death row. Geoffrey Fletcher penned the script, based on the 2009 article in The New Yorker that won David Grann the Polk Award. Zwick’s Bedford Falls is producing with Flashlight Films’ Allyn Stewart & Kipp Nelson, and Alex Soros, the latter of whom is financing.


Congrats Jade!!
