It’s good to see Nicolas Cage getting back to some honest to goodness acting once again with recent roles like Joe and The Frozen Ground. Today’s news has potential to deliver as well, as Cage has signed on to Pay the Ghost, a supernatural thriller about a father searching for his missing son.
According to Variety, Cage plays an NYU English professor striving toward tenure when his son disappears during a Halloween day parade. Dan Kay (Timber Falls) is handling script duties as he adapts Tim Lebbon’s short story of the same name.
Kay developed the script with Midnight Kitchen Productions’ Ian Levy, which was then acquired by Voltage Films.
The most surprising thing about this story is that Uli Edel is still directing. I haven’t seen his name attached to anything since the early 90s when the director helmed the Madonna thriller Body of Evidence and a season two episode of “Twin Peaks.” Turns out he’s been plenty busy in that interim.
