Just days after he boarded the David Gordon Green drama Joe, the very busy Nicolas Cage has signed on for yet another new project. And unlike Green’s gritty literary drama, this one puts Cage back in the thriller genre where he’s apparently most comfortable.
Emmett/Furla Films, which was also behind Cage’s recently wrapped The Frozen Ground, is re-teaming with the actor for I Am Wrath, a crime thriller scripted by Paul Sloan. If there’s anything about the project that gives us hope it’ll rise above recent Cage duds like Seeking Justice and Trespass, though, it’s the involvement of William Friedkin. The 77-year-old filmmaker is reportedly eyeing I Am Wrath as his follow-up to this year’s Killer Joe. More after the jump.
