Paul Schrader’s much talked about The Canyons is finally hitting US cinemas next month, and now he’s preparing for his next film. He’s been talking to the people at The Playlist, telling them that he’s lining up Nicolas Cage to star in his movie, The Dying Of The Light.
Schrader isn’t the first to take on Schrader’s script for the movie, as in 2010 Nicolas Winding Refn was attached to helm, but pulled out when over creative differences with his star at the time, Harrison Ford. Now it seems Schrader is set to helm himself, although it appears Refn may still produce.
The movies is about ‘a C.I.A. agent who starts to become afflicted with blindness while on his last mission’. There’s no news on exactly when it might shoot.
