Nicolas Cage goes for the splattergun approach to making films – sign up for as many as humanly possible in the hope that at least a few will hit their mark. Now he’s adding another to the lengthy roster of movies he has planned.
Deadline reports that Cage is now set to star in the new thriller I Am Wrath, with William Friedkin circling the project to direct as a follow-up to his successful (for him at least) Killer Joe. Paul Sloan wrote the screenplay which follows Stanley (Nicolas Cage), a man who becomes frustrated with the cops when they fail to find his wife’s killer. When he uncovers widespread police corruption, he becomes a vigilante, sworn to take down these crooked cops.
The hope is to start shooting next February.
