Deadline reports of Bulgarian news coverage over actor Nicolas Cage’s next film, 211, for Millenium/Nu Image. The film marks the fifth feature film apart from a spate of documentaries for director York Alex Shackleton who shared a nomination credit for Best Screenplay on William Phelps’s 2001 comedy short, Stealing Roy.
Specific plot details are nil, although the report states, 211 is the police code for “Robbery In Progress”, describing the central narrative for Cage’s role as a good cop trying to thwart a robbery. Jonathan Yunger and Jeffrey Greenstein are producing the film with Yariv Lerner, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short and Scott Karp serving as executive producers.
Production is slated for March at Nu Boyana Studios in Bulgaria. Cage recently wrapped Harold Becker’s upcoming novel adaptation, Vengeance: A Love Story, prior to finishing Rob King’s The Humanity Bureau.
