So I was flipping channels the other day and saw a preview for a new HBO movie. Its based on a Cormac McCarthy play. He's the dude who wrote No Country For Old Men and The Road. Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson play the 2 guys, Jones also directed it. Saturday February 12th at 9PM EST.
Here's the description of the play from wiki
The play involves only two nameless characters, designated "White" and "Black", their respective skin colors. Offstage, just before the play begins, Black saves White from throwing himself in front of a train, the Sunset Limited. All of the action takes place in Black's spare apartment in urban New York, where the characters go (at the behest of Black) after their encounter on the platform. Black is an ex-convict and an evangelical Christian. White is an atheist and a professor. They debate the meaning of human suffering, the existence of God, and the propriety of White's attempted suicide.
