Adapted from the Ira Levin's novel, pic follows the story of a man who unveils a diabolical plot by Nazis in South America to revive the Third Reich through the use of cloning.

The only child of a famous Jewish socialite, Ratner initially made his start in show business as a music video director before encountering his directorial debut on the big screen in "Whatever Happened to Mason Reese" (1990). His other film works include "Red Dragon", "After the Sunset", and "X-Men: The Last Stand."
