A down-and-out film producer agrees to make his nephew's film about 19th century English statesman Benjamin Disraeli, but can only get financing if he casts a well-known action star. Production is halted however, when the lead actor is kidnapped, so the producer hatches a scheme with a struggling creative executive to save the star and the movie. Written by
This star-studed film from Steven Schachter (director of the Emmy award winning TV film Door to Door) is an interesting film with a diverse combination of comedy and action. The Deal features many well known actors including William H Macy (Fargo), Meg Ryan (When Harry Met Sally), LL Cool J (Last Holiday), and Jason Ritter (TV's Joan of Arcadia). This film is a new inside look on the Hollywood scene and should not be missed. I've always been a fan on films about Hollywood and this is one of the more interesting takes on that. I'm also a fan of the every day man acting in William H Macy's. I know he put a lot of work into getting this film out, which wasn't released in theaters. It's now available on DVD so I recommend checking it out.
