Another month, another Nicolas Cage thriller. This time around, the film is Roger Donaldson‘s Seeking Justice (formerly titled The Hungry Rabbit Jumps and then just Justice), and Cage plays a man so filled with rage over a recent attack on his wife (January Jones) that he takes a stranger (Guy Pearce) up on his offer to “take care of” the attacker. Cage’s character is then shocked, just shocked, to find out that vigilante justice isn’t exactly sweet and simple. Watch the trailer after the jump.

It’s been over a year since we saw anything from the Roger Donaldson thriller The Hungry Rabbit Jumps, which shot in late 2009 with Nicolas Cage, January Jones and Guy Pearce. Turns out, the film now has a different title — the much less quirky Justice — and after a long delay is finally going to see release. There’s a UK trailer for the film, and after watching it you can probably start to understand why the film has been delayed for so long.
Hit the jump for that footage, showing how Cage is drawn into an ugly situation when he accepts Guy Pearce’s offer of third-party vengeance after his wife (Jones) is attacked. There are also a bunch of images from the film. One image has Nic Cage in a glittery Mardi Gras mask, and if I don’t start to see that as some of your Twitter icons soon I’ll be disappointed.

Not surprisingly, it seems that things are going well for January Jones’s career after her great work in Mad Men. In a recent page 3, we mentioned that Jones would be joining Diane Kruger and Liam Neeson in Unknown White Male. Now it seems she has another theatrical project lined up. Jones will be starring in Hungry Rabbit Jump, alongside Nicolas Cage as his wife. The film will be helmed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job, Thirteen Days), with a script by Robert Tannen (Even Money).

UPDATE: Spoke too soon on the Green Hornet deal below. THR reports that Cage has officially dropped out of Gondry’s movie. He had not yet shot any scenes. (He’d never ‘officially’ joined the cast.) Columbia, Gondry and the producers will commence the search for a new villain; expect to hear that casting fairly soon. Original article follows.
Nicolas Cage seems to be making movies left and right — he’s finished The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Bad Lieutenant and Kick-Ass, may well be the bad guy in The Green Hornet, will be starring in Drive Angry, and now is jumping onto a sort of revenge thriller called The Hungry Rabbit Jumps. Anything that keeps him from making another Ghost Rider movie, right? (Or would you prefer that he be safely confined within that sequel rather than bringing that hair to new projects?) Read More »
