RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, has acquired the North America, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand rights to the psychological thriller, SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL from Christian Mercuri’s Capstone Global, which is handling worldwide sales for the film.
Directed by Yuval Adler (Bethlehem, The Operative), SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL is the feature screenwriting debut of Luke Paradise. It stars Nicolas Cage (Mandy, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent) and Joel Kinnaman (The Suicide Squad 1 & 2, Silent Night). The film will be released on July 28, 2023.
“This is our eighth collaboration with Nicolas Cage, which includes MANDY - a critically-acclaimed film that has a huge cult following,” said RLJE Film Chief Acquisitions Officer Mark Ward. “Once again, he doesn’t disappoint. In this film, Cage and Joel Kinnaman bring to life a suspenseful tale on screen that will keep audiences guessing.”
