Beyond the break you’ll find the promo sales art and full synopsis for Abel Ferrara’s Jekyll & Hyde, which stars Forest Whitaker and rapper Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson. The film is a re-imagining of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” which will be contemporized and titled Jekyll and Hyde.
“Dr Jekyll is a rich doctor of great generosity who lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Mr Hyde is a sadistic murderer with a reputation that strikes fear in to the hearts of people throughout New York. Peter Utterson, Dr Jekyll’s lawyer and friend, investigates the mystery of who Mr Hyde is and why he is the sole beneficiary of Jekyll’s will.
The devastating answer is that Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde are the same person and the urgent problem is how to kill the beast without destroying the man.”
