October 10th, 2008

On this date in the United States, the Ridley Scott production Body of Lies was released.

The movie starred Academy Award winner Russell Crowe, and future Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, and was described being “based on “Washington Post” columnist David Ignatius’ 2007 novel about a CIA operative, Roger Ferris, who uncovers a lead on a major terrorist leader suspected to be operating out of Jordan. When Ferris devises a plan to infiltrate his network, he must first win the backing of cunning CIA veteran Ed Hoffman and the collegial, but perhaps suspect, head of Jordanian intelligence. Although ostensibly his allies, Ferris questions how far he can really trust these men without putting his entire operation–and his life–on the line.”
