We’d do anything with Nicolas Cage. Plant daisies, go shirtless and shoeless for some Fight Club type action, embrace him from behind while making pottery and listening to The Righteous Brothers. You name it. Wait … what we were talking about again? Oh yeah, casting news … Frozen Ground. Read on …
According to Deadline High School Musical‘s Vanessa Hudgens (not pictured right because we couldn’t resist reposting that picture of Cage) has been set to star alongside Cage and John Cusack in Frozen Ground, the Emmett/Furla Films thriller that is being sold in Toronto, with Voltage Pictures handling international sales. The film, which will begin shooting October 17 in Anchorage, Alaska, marks the feature directing debut of Scott Walker, who wrote the script.
The film is based on true events surrounding Alaska’s most notorious serial predator, Robert Hansen. Cusack is playing Hansen, regarded in the community as a respected family man. In the span of 12 years, he abducted more than 24 women, flew them into the Alaskan wilderness, and hunted and murdered them. Hudgens will play the one teenage victim who escaped. When she returned to tell her story, nobody believed her. Cage will play the Alaskan State Trooper who finds her on the street. Together they work to bring Hansen to justice.
More as it comes.
