Nicolas Cage to star in thriller ‘Wally’s Wonderland’
Nicolas Cage will star in the new thriller directed by Kevin Lewis (“The Drop”), based on a screenplay by G.O. Parsons (“The Roommate”).
In “Wally’s Wonderland”, Nicolas Cage will play a janitor forced to spend the night in a haunted amusement park. As the menacing animatronic characters of the park come to life, the janitor must “fight his way from one monster to another to survive until morning and get out of the park,” Deadline reports.
The 55-year-old actor is the first cast member to be announced. He will also produce the film, along with JD Entertainment, Saturn Films, Almost Never Films and Screen Media Ventures.
“For me, there was always one actor and one actor only who could make this movie work, and that actor is Nic Cage. I’m thrilled to be working with him and can’t wait to see him go up against Wally and his gang of psychopathic misfits. I see this movie as Pale Rider vs Killer Klowns from Outer Space,” Lewis said in the report.
Besides this project, the “Face/Off” actor is keeping busy: he will next be seen in action flick “Primal”, slated for United States theater release on Nov. 8, as well as in drama “Siberia” alongside Willem Dafoe.
