Nicolas Cage will star in “Prisoners of the Ghostland”, a post-apocalyptic action thriller that will mark the English-language debut of Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono, says Deadline.
XYZ Films is repping worldwide rights on the new title this week at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film marks the reunion of Cage and XYZ, who also worked on “Mandy” – which is playing at Cannes.
Script fixes on notorious criminal Hero (Cage) who is sent to rescue an abducted girl 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, an East-meets-West vortex of beauty and violence.
