Hey guys, Jana here,


In the world of Nicolas Cage, he’s in project after project. I’m hoping his tax issues are coming to a close and he can actually pick quality roles over quantity. Not that taking every part is a bad thing, Danny Trejo kicks ass with that and it’s more fun than finding the hidden Mickeys in a Disney movie to spy the Trejo appearances.

Back to Nic though, he has finalized a deal to star in ‘Mom and Dad‘, and it’s a new horror-thriller as anyone with parents can attest to. The project will be written and directed by the co-director of Cage’s 2011 ‘Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance‘, Brian Taylor. The pic centers on a teenage girl and her little brother who must survive 24 hours during which a mass hysteria of unknown origins causes parents to turn violently on their own kids.

Nic Cage playing a crazy guy, I don’t think I’ve seen that sine his last flick, but maybe that’s just me. From Taylor “This is the kind of role Nick was put here to play: Human, funny, scary – somehow grounded while at the same time completely off the rails. For a filmmaker there is nothing quite like the experience of Nick Cage bringing a character you’ve written to life.” Taylor has done some good business with writer-director partner Mark Neveldine from the ‘Ghost Rider‘ sequel to two ‘Crank‘ movies with Jason Statham and shared a writing credit, among others, on ‘Jonah Hex‘. This will be Taylor’s first solo effort, but I’m kind of looking forward to this one. Wow me guys!
