Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Duhamel to star in Sympathy for the Devil
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Duhamel are lined up to star in SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL for director Boaz Yakin. The film is a horror take on the ongoing battle between heaven and hell, with Jackson and Duhamel playing humans caught in the mix. It feels an awful lot like THE PROPHECY. Here’s the official 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.
Sounds interesting enough, but these films can be hard to pull off. This weekend’s LEGION will be a good sign if audiences are still interested in fighting angels.
