JOSH DUHAMEL AND SAMUEL L. JACKSON HAVE "SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL"

I don't know why is Hollywood so obsessed with angels and demons these days, but it seems Josh Duhamel and Samuel L. Jackson might make some feathers fly all around in "Sympathy for the Devil". Helmed by Boaz Yakin the movie has a very strange synopsis:
Caught in the no-man's land between Saturday night sin and Sunday morning redemption, Louisiana lawman Harlan Stark (Josh 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 (Samuel L. 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 get controversial when all hell breaks loose in New Orleans and the sacred becomes as deadly as the profane.

  1. I thought this would be drama, but it sounds more like action-adventure movie with special effects. I hope I'm not wrong. :)

  2. as far as I got it, they plan to make it visually similar to SPIRIT and SIN CITY, but I'm not sure. I'm happy that charming Josh Duhamel is finally getting more roles. This month we'll be seeing him in WHEN IN ROME as well.
