Edward J. Olmos returns to directing starring alongside David Strathairn, Kate Bosworth, Haley Joel Osment and Alfred Molina, the ecological film The Devil Has a Name, of which the trailer has just been released.
We have always admired the multifaceted talent of Edward James Olmos, reference character for American actors of Latin origin, actor in over 100 memorable series and films, from Miami Vice a Blade Runner, gives Dexter a Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, as well as director of two films, the beautiful American Me and this new one, of which we show you the trailer, which is entitled The Devil Has a Name. For years Olmos is active on ecological themes like water pollution and this film reflects its ideals.
Written by Rob McEveety, The Devil Has No Name sees at the center of the story a widower left, broke and adrift, Fred Stern (David Strathairn) who finds a new purpose in life when she learns that the psychopathic matriarch of a sinister oil company is polluting the water that irrigates her land. But when his crusade against power takes him to court and risks costing him what little he has left, as well as his dreams, Fred must find a way to survive and save what he believes in. A metaphor of American greed that does not look at anything or anyone in the face to ensure maximum income.
In the film, inspired by real events, it reads the same Olmos, along with a highly respected cast that includes Kate Bosworth, Alfred Molina, Katie Aselton, Haley Joel Osment, Pablo Schreiber and another famous activist actor, Martin Sheen. The Devil Has a Name it will be released in America in theaters and digitally on October 16, we hope to see it too because it has all the characteristics to be a good film.
