'Suing the Devil' Movie Takes Spiritual Battle to Courtroom

The Bible says when the thief is caught stealing he has to repay sevenfold. But have you ever wished you could just sue the devil?

That’s the idea behind Suing the Devil, a faith-based legal thriller that brings the spiritual battle to the courtroom. The film aims to offer insight into the danger of pride, the power of prayer, and the ultimate victory of faith in Christ over the forces of evil.

At a time when many are questioning the reality of hell and Satan—according to the latest Barna Group poll, only 50 percent of Christians believe in the devil—Suing the Devil aims its guns at Satan's strategy. The film opens in select theaters nationwide on Aug. 26.

In the film, Luke O'Brien (Bart Bronson), a washed-up janitor turned night law student, sues Satan (Malcolm McDowell) for $8 trillion. Satan, who has 10 of the country's best lawyers on his legal team, appears to defend himself on the last day before Luke files a defauly judgment. The whole world watches Legal TV to see who will win "the trial of the century."

"Second Corinthians 2:11 says to not be ignorant of the devil's scheme," said Tim Chey, writer and director of Suing the Devil. "Yet the majority of Christians are as blind as a bat."

Suing the Devil also stars Rebecca St. James, Corbin Bernsen, Shannen Fields (Facing the Giants), Tom Sizemore and Roslyn Gentle. Plus, Hillsong participated in the movie, shot in Sydney, Australia.

The film won a 5-Dove Seal from the Dove Foundation and made the list of Wired magazine's "Top Summer Movies That Will Rock Your World."
