As I reported a few minutes ago, Nu Image/Millenium is making Rambo 5 about Rambo tracking down some kidnappers. Not to be outdone (by themselves!), Nu Image/Millenium is also making a movie about Nic Cage tracking down some kidnappers. “…what I do have is a particular set of skills, and the most ridiculous haircut in the world.”
Nic Cage has signed to star in “Drive Angry,” a 3D revenge action movie that Patrick Lussier will direct for Nu Image/Millenium Films. [See also: "Don't drive angry.."]
Patrick Lussier is the guy who did My Bloody Valentine 3-D, so you can bet this will be a real think-piece about dyslexic Holocaust victims.
Written by Lussier and Todd Farmer, the story centers on a man (Cage) driven by rage who is chasing the people who killed his daughter and kidnapped her baby. The vendetta/rescue spins out of control as the chase gets bloodier by the mile, leaving bodies strewn along the highway. [THR]
So Nic Cage drives a car, you see, while being driven himself by rage. It’s like a meta French Connection, a Ronin set within the architecture of the human mind set within a giant forehead. Though I’m not sure if Nic Cage will be able to pull off screaming and being agitated, it seems like such a “stretch.” (*wank motion*)
