Cohen Media Group and Merchant Ivory Productions present the new 2K restoration of 1988’s The Deceivers, directed by Nicholas Meyer (“Medici”, Star Trek II, IV, and VI) and written by Michael Hirst (“Vikings”, “The Tudors”).
 
 
Pierce Brosnan, Saeed Jaffrey, Shashi Kapoor, and Helena Michell star in the film set in India, in 1825.  The country is being ravaged by the Thugees, cult members also known as “The Deceivers,” who commit robbery and ritualistic murder. Appalled by their activities, English Captain William Savage (Pierce Brosnan) undertakes a hazardous task: in disguise, he will infiltrate their ranks. He is at constant risk of betrayal and vengeance and undergoes a disturbing psychological transformation as he experiences the cult’s bloodlust firsthand.
 
 
The Deceivers opens in theaters in LA and New York on August 27, 2021.
