Philidelphia will set the stage for director Steven C. Miller’s new action flick, Philly Fury. Deadline reported this week the film will commence in May with a script by Jason Mosberg which pits a businessman against a local crimeboss when his deadbeat brother gets kidnapped and held for ransom.
Nicolas Cage is the first to be cast for the film which Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films is producing, as well as releasing through their earlier distribution deal with Lionsgate. Miller previously helmed Extraction which featured Kellan Lutz, Bruce Willis and Gina Carano for its 2015 release, and is currently in post production with heist thriller, Marauders, also with Willis and starring Christopher Meloni and Dave Bautista.
Cage joins actor Elijah Wood in the new crime dramedy, The Trust, on May 13.
