Beside Denzel Washington, in the cats of the Book of Eli: Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson and Jennifer Beals. The film should be released in January 2010.
“In the post-apocalyptic world of the book of Eli, civilization has collapsed and clean water has become the prime currency.
Washington plays a survivor who must fend off gangs and a brutal tyrant in this desolate wasteland.
Oldman will play the film’s villain, a despot of a small and pathetic town, who’s determined to get a hold of Eli’s book, a book that may save Mankind.”
So Denzel Washington is going is going to bring order back in a back both with a book and a samurai sword: he’ll be like a super-Obama running a campaign set in a post-apocalyptic world where a samurai sword can be damn handy even if it is still not as mighty as the traditional pen!
