Set to begin production this summer in Belgium, the film takes place in 1983 and will see Cage as Red Miller, a broken and haunted man out for revenge against 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 Daniel Noah of SpectreVision. “Nicolas Cage is a veritable god to those of us who grew up watching his classic performances.
