The Deal (2008)

Film details


Comedy. Charlie Berns, a long-time Hollywood producer down-on-his-luck and on the verge of suicide, cons a major studio to finance a $100 million film based on a non-existent script, starring a black action star who has converted to Judasim and shot in South Africa. But when the leading man gets kidnapped and the picture gets shut down, Berns flees to Prague with beautiful Hollywood studio executive Deidre Hearn and uses the studio's blocked funds to make a completely different picture.
