WICKER MAN REMAKE MOVES FORWARD
The Internet Movie Database is reporting that the WICKER MAN remake to be directed by Neil (THE SHAPE OF THINGS) LaBute is moving forward with Nicolas Cage starring. Cage will play the Edward Woodward role of a policeman searching for a missing girl who winds up on an island inhabited by a pagan society?though the setting will be switched from Britain to America. LaBute outlined a further change in the story:
?Nick?s character ends up [among] a very matriarchal society whose members are direct descendants of the Pilgrims. Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder would be two great choices. It?s a great film for actresses.? Of course, after Jolie grabbed the GIRL, INTERRUPTED Oscar Ryder was shooting for, they might not want to have those two on the same set, but in any case, no start date has been set yet for the Universal project.
