You can't keep Nic Cage down...
...RLJE Films has announced that they have acquired US rights to action-horror flick Prisoners of The Ghostland starring Nic Cage (Mandy, Color Out of Space) ahead of its world premiere at Sundance from director Sion Sono!
In Prisoners of The Ghostland, written by Aaron Hendry and Rexa Sixo Safai:
"Set in the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town, a ruthless bank robber is sprung from jail by wealthy warlord The Governor, whose adopted granddaughter Bernice has gone missing. The Governor offers the prisoner his freedom in exchange for retrieving the runaway. Strapped into a leather suit that will self-destruct within three days, the bandit sets off on a journey to find the young woman—and his own path to redemption."
The film also stars Sofia Boutella (The Mummy), Nick Cassavetes (Face/Off), Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Franchise), Tak Sakaguchi (Tokyo Tribe) and Yuzuka Nakaya (The Forest of Love). Joseph Trapanese (Tron: Legacy, The Raid: Redemption, The Greatest Showman) composed the original score.
If you're attending Sundance this weekend, this is one film you will not want to miss.
