Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Duhamel to Show Sympathy for the Devil
It seems like the subjects of Heaven and Hell have never been hotter! Yet another new flick is on the way featuring characters who must walk the line in between the varied realms of existence while getting into a bit of trouble along the way!
Our amigos over at Latino Review just broke the news that both Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Duhamel are set to star in a new film called Sympathy for the Devil. Boaz Yakin of Remember the Titans is set to direct, and a script is written and ready to go.
Check out the synopsis below and look for more soon.
Caught in the no-man’s land between Saturday night sin and Sunday morning redemption, Louisiana lawman Harlan Stark (Duhamel) finds that his intervention into a spectacular crime – the bold attempt to assassinate a charismatic preacher - soon escalates into a cosmic confrontation between Heaven and Hell, where angels are warriors as dangerous as demons. Harlan and his loyal partner Jesse (Jackson) stand at the fulcrum between vengeful good and devious evil, with neither side showing anything like mercy. Harlan must find the courage to break the cycle and reject fanatical revenge; yet, he, too, finds himself transformed. Outrageous, violent, and subversive, this new adventure in horror from the director of Remember the Titans is sure to be controversial. Sympathy for the Devil blends the seductive sensuality of Angel Heart, the genre-bending audacity of Pulp Fiction, and the relentless intensity of The Omen when all hell breaks loose in New Orleans and the sacred becomes as deadly as the profane.
