Imogen Poots Joins Nic Cage in Post-Apocalyptic Horror PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND

What happens when a talented up-and-comer teams up with an actor know for his legendary range? We’ll find out when Imogen Poots joins Nic Cage as co-headliners of the apocalyptic horror movie Prisoners of the Ghostland. Most horror fans will remember Poots from her arresting performance as a punk rocker/neo-Nazi in Green Room; Cage has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity following his unhinged performance in 2018’s Mandy.

Prisoners of the Ghostland first English-language film from Japanese director Sion Sono, who helms the project from a screenplay penned by Aaron Hendry and Reza Sixo Safai; THR got the exclusive:

Described ­by Cage himself as possibly his “wildest movie” ever – and this after his insane blood-soaked psychedelic 2018 hit Mandy – Prisoners of the Ghostland is billed as an “east meets west vortex of beauty and violence.”

Synopsis:
When a notorious criminal, Hero (Cage), is sent to rescue an abducted girl (Poots) who has disappeared into a dark supernatural universe, they must break the evil curse that binds them and escape the mysterious revenants that rule the Ghostland.

Prisoners of the Ghostland is currently seeking backing at Berlin’s EFM. Though it’ll be a long time before the film comes to fruition, it’s definitely a project we’ll be keeping our eyes on. Stay tuned!
