Sympathy for the Devil, starring Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage, will be available for streaming in India on Lionsgate Play from September 29. Directed by Yuval Adler, the film follows a taxi driver on his way to the hospital, as he is interrupted by an unwelcome passenger and held at gunpoint.

"Forced against his will, this dangerous car ride uncovers hidden secrets that leave both the driver, played by the celebrated Joel Kinnaman, and the passenger in shock," read the synopsis of the movie according to a press release.

Cage, who plays the passenger in Sympathy for the Devil, described his character as someone who is “enigmatic”. “He’s trying to get the driver to get back to the the evil dog that he knows is in him. Joel’s character, the driver, is on the other side because they have both been at the epicentre of this particular tragedy.”

Sympathy for the Devil is written by Luke Paradise and is produced by Allan Ungar, Alex Lebovici, Stuart Manashil, and Cage.
