Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe collide in Warner Bros.' new gripping action-thriller Body of Lies from maverick director Ridley Scott.
DiCaprio plays Roger Ferris, the best man U.S. Intelligence has on the ground, a sophisticated operative negotiating hot zones while no one close to him makes it out alive. But Roger Ferris he is a man with no identity beyond his last blown cover, trusting his life to the dispassionate voice on the other end of a secure phone line.
Crowe is CIA veteran Ed Hoffman who wages war from a laptop in his living room in the suburbs, dictating Ferris's movements even as he dodges bullets on the ground.
Now, an emerging terrorist leader has orchestrated a global campaign of bombings, eluding the most sophisticated intelligence network in the world. To lure him out into the open, Ferris will have to penetrate the world of underground financing and desperate martyrs, and form a shaky alliance with the head of Jordanian Special Ops. His quest takes him across Iraq, Jordan, Washington and Dubai, but the closer Ferris gets to the target, the more he finds himself caught in a hall of mirrors, where allies are only as good as their last deception, and trust becomes the most dangerous tactic of all.
From a screenplay by Oscar winner William Monahan (The Departed) based on the novel by former Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, Body of Lies also stars Mark Strong (Stardust), Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani (M for Mother), Oscar Isaac (The Nativity Story) and Simon McBurney (The Golden Compass).
Opening soon across the Philippines, Body of Lies will be distributed by Warner Bros Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
