Nicolas Cage Sees a ‘Ghost’

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.

    Nic Cage as a professor at a University?! Oh man, what does he teach? Over the top acting? There’s no way he’d be an english professor!

    There’s no way Sandra bullock could be an astronaut, but wait, they’re actors

    Umm… Okay? I know they’re actor and actors can act multiple roles but some actors can pull of more roles than others. But now that I think about it I bet Nic Cage can play an NYU professor, he’ll be a perfect as an eccentric and crazy professor. I just hope they don’t try to play it straight and allow him to go all out nuts in this. That’s when he’s at his best.
