Today, Cage has signed on to play the lead in Lost Melody, a love story about a man and a prostitute.
Lost Melody is being directed by Terry Zwigoff (Bad Santa) and produced by Edward R. Pressman (American Psycho, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call – New Orleans). The story, such as it is right now, concerns a man trapped in a bad marriage who falls for a prostitute. We assume that Nicolas Cage plays the man and not the prostitute. Although, that could be really interesting.
Pressman has described Lost Melody as a ‘darkly-funny drama in the tradition of such classics as The Blue Angel and Sunset Boulevard.
