Casting Round-up: Halle Berry Joins Kidnap; Nicolas Cage Will Pay The Ghost

Academy Award winner and notable movie hottie Halle Berry will star in Luis Prieto's upcoming thriller KIDNAP. The movie is described as "a heart-stopping action thriller following a mother (Berry) who will stop at nothing to rescue her kidnapped son."

"Not another kidnaping movie" said everyone while reading that plot. It sounds like she's on the other end of the line this time around after starring in 2013's THE CALL as a 911 operator who is trying to save an abducted girl. Thankfully you can see Berry in next week's release of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and here in this awesome picture of her.

Then there was Cage. The legend that is Nicolas Cage is set to star in the upcoming supernatural thriller PAY THE GHOST based on a short story written by author Tim Lebbon.

The story kicks off:

On Halloween night, a couple's young son is mysteriously abducted. A year later, they begin to sense his presence in frightening ways. A string of terrifying clues draws them to search for the boy throughout New York, where they uncover ancient secrets and discover a vicious, vengeful spirit.

Cage will play a hard-working NYU English professor whose aforementioned son vanishes. They had us at Nicolas Cage and horror movie right? He’s going to act scared and upset over his son disappearing? He’s going to act the shit out of this role.

And sure why not:

Halle Berry doing gender-flipped Taken? Ashley Judd beat her to it in that short-lived TV show.

Hmm, "clues" , "ancient secrets" and "vengeful.....spirit"? so basically National Treasure/Knowing meets Ghost Rider.

Yup, totally sounds like a Nic Cage fest! :D
As for Halle Berry, its hard for me to hate on her. Yeah, I checked out Gothika a few days ago and strangely had fun with it. Imagine, Storm and Iron Man in the same movie.

Cage Rage!

Man I hope we get to see Nic Cage go nuts and give a batshit crazy performance (that includes screaming at a vengeful ghost Wicker Man Style). The Halle Berry movie sounds par for the course for her lately, she seems to be taking a lot of generic, paycheck roles but honestly I don't think she has much box office clout at this point in her career to headline a really quality, box office success. She would be helped by doing a few small, independent films or maybe play some smaller part with

She would be helped by doing a few small, independent films or maybe play some smaller part with some talented filmmakers/costars to kick her career back into gear (a la X-Men DOFP). She is as talented as any actress in the business and at 47 she is still amazingly gorgeous! Neither film will likely pull me into a theater but the Nic Cage movie has the potential to at least be fairly interesting.

I'm always up for a new Nic Cage film. This one sounds like it could be one of his better ones of late.
