Here's our first look at Nicolas Cage in David Gordon Green's (Pineapple Express, Your Highness) upcoming southern drama Joe, and Cage is sporting a very different bearded look. The photo also includes the film's co-star Tye Sheridan (Tree of Life, Mud). I honestly think this is a pretty badass look for Cage.
The movie is based on the Larry Brown novel of the same name, and the script was written by Gary Hawkins. Here's the synopsis,
In the dirty unruly world of small-town Texas, ex-convict Joe Ransom (Cage) has tried to put his dark past behind him and to live a simple life. He works for a lumber company by day, drinks by night. But when 15-year-old Gary (Sheridan) - a kid trying to support his family - comes to town, desperate for work, Joe has found a way to atone for his sins - to finally be someone’s hero. As Joe tries to protect Gary, the pair will take the twisting road to redemption in the hope for a better life in this tough, hard-hitting but incredibly moving story.
