Injuries aside, actor Nicolas Cage’s 211 is one I’m looking forward to catching in due time. Meanwhile, expect more on his latest attachment Mandy, which will shoot this summer in Belgium with Beyond The Black Rainbow helmer Panos Cosmatos directing.
Mandy is set in the primal wilderness of 1983 where Red Miller, a broken and haunted man hunts an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life.
“Panos is one of the most vital young filmmakers alive, a pop-culture Kubrick in the making,” said Noah, SpectreVision’s Head of Development. “Nicolas Cage is a veritable god to those of us who grew up watching his classic performances. Bringing these two together for this surrealist, heavy-metal-soaked story of battle axes and demon bikers is unfathomably exciting to us.”
Involved are producer Nate Bolotin and executive producers Todd Brown and Nick Spicer whose XYZ Films are handling worldwide sales, and producer Adrian Politowski whose Umedia is financing with Piccadily Pictures. Also producing are SpectreVision’s own Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Cage’s The Trust co-star Elijah Wood, with Lisa Whalen, Martin Metz, Peter Bevan, Christopher Figg and Robert Whitehouse executive producing and Oscar-nominated composer Jóhann Jóhannsson (Sicario, Arrival) providing the score.
