BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
After two films starring as the Spirit of Vengeance, Nicolas Cage is ready to return to the world of ghosts — just not Ghost Rider.
The Oscar winner has boarded Pay the Ghost, the supernatural thriller from Voltage Films and director Uli Edel. Cage stars as “a hard-working NYU English professor bucking for tenure when his 8-year-old son mysteriously vanishes from a Halloween day parade,” according to Variety.
Pay the Ghost, based on author Tim Lebbon’s short story of the same name, is shooting for a start date in late summer. Casting is under way for the female lead.
