Nicolas Cage has been cast in yet another movie! This latest movie is an action-thriller called I Am Wrath. Director William Friedkin (To Live And Die In LA, The French Connection) is looking to direct the film after he finishes making Killer Joe.
Here's a description of the story:
Following the murder of his wife, Stanley (Cage) finds that the police are unable to catch the perpetrators. He uncovers a thick plot of police corruption and realizes that he will have to find justice on his own. As he awakens to the level of degradation of the people sworn to serve and protect, we get a little Rage in the Cage as he becomes a vigilante out to destroy those who abuse their power.
This seems like the kind of film Cage would take on, but not one I think I would enjoy seeing him in. It's kind of amazing to see how many movie projects Cage attaches himself to! Just a couple of days ago it was announced that he would join David Gordon-Green's Joe, which sounds like a much better project than this. At least the movie has a solid director.
The script for I Am Wrath was written by Paul Sloan, which was based on an idea by Yvan Gauthier. Does this sound like a movie you'd be interested in seeing with Cage in the lead role?
