Cage To Play Vengeful Video Cop

Subscribe To:

NICOLAS CAGE is the latest movie star to turn a videogame hero into a big screen character after signing up to play JACK SLATE in the adaptation of DEAD TO RIGHTS.

Cage will also co-produce the movie, in which he'll play a disgraced cop who is determined to find out who murdered his father.

Producer LORENZO DI BONAVENTURA says, "The videogame is so compelling because it has so many rich elements and the trick is to cut them down and get to the core story.

"The central character is emotionally tortured and that always makes for a good movie and a good Nic Cage movie."

Cage is also bringing a cartoon hero to the big screen - his next project will be the leading role in GHOST RIDER, an adaptation of the MARVEL COMICS strip.
