Regent shakes hands with ‘Devil’

Studio acquires domestic rights to film

Regent Releasing has acquired the domestic rights to the docudrama “Shake Hands With the Devil.”

Pic was helmed by Roger Spottiswoode and stars Roy Dupuis and Deborah Kara Unger

“Devil” revolves around Lieutenant-General, Romeo Dallaire played by Dupuis, who was sent to oversee a cease-fire back in 1993 between Rwanda rebels and the Hutu majority group.

When the Rwandan President’s plane is shot down, the infamous Rwandan genocide is set in place against the Tutsi minority with Dupuis stuck in the middle trying to deal with far off superiors while trying to save more than 800,000 civilians at the same time.

The pic was produced by Michael Donovan and no release date has been set.
