Malcolm McDowell as the devil? Great casting, in my opinion and Tim Chey’s latest slice of Relitigious filmmaking (his previous films include Gone, in which a group of lawyers deal with the Rapture) gets a US release on the 26th of August, over a year since its pemiere. Looks like a fun premise and here’s a matter of fact synopsis to ease you in,
A down-and-out law student sues Satan for $8 trillion dollars. Satan appears to defend himself and the trial of the century takes place.
What I’m hoping is that this is some sort of sequel to the 2001 Billy Connolly film The Man Who Sued God and there’ll be a third film which combines the two in some sort of Heavenly Courts of Justice overseen by Oprah Winfrey with Robin Williams and Bill Murray lawyering up. Not a lot of chance of that happening is there? Oh well.
Here’s the clip, the ‘real’ trailer and a shiny new poster follows,
If you want HD you’d better go and pick the Apple.
