It looks like Nicolas Cage could be teaming up with The Exorcist director William Friedkin. Emmett/Furla Films has signed Nic Cage to I Am Wrath and Friedkin is said to be interested in Cage’s new action-thriller as a follow up to his most recent project Killer Joe.
In I Am Wrath Cage will play Stanley, a man whose wife was murdered. When the corrupt police force in useless in finding the killer, Stanley is forced to take matters into his own hands. That’s right, Cage and his hair versus an entire police force. Things are sure to get wild. Friedkin, is not a director known for doing things half-assed, so, this combo could make for an interesting team.
Written by Paul Sloan, Lionsgate is set to release I Am Wrath and production is reported to begin in February.
