The Con Air reunion you've been waiting for as Nic Cage and John Cusack reteam for thriller

OK, so no one is really waiting for a CON AIR reunion but that isn't stopping stars Nic Cage and John Cusack from working together for a second time. The two stars are in talks to star in THE FROZEN GROUND, a crime-drama set in Alaska and based on the true story of the state's most notorious serial killer.

If you've already suspected that Cage would be playing the bonkers serial killer, you're actually wrong. Cusack would play the unassuming killer who played the quiet family man during the day while going out and torturing prostitutes at night. Cage would play the Alaska Highway Patrolman who is tracking down the killer.

The film is being set up independently but looks as if it might end up at Lionsgate, where many of producer Emmett Furla's films land. FROZEN would mark the directorial debut of Scott Walker who's best known for...well, nothing. Walker doesn't have an agent or a manager and it's unclear exactly how he got this gig. (The only Scott Walker with a writing credit on his IMDB was best known for "An Idiot's Guide To..." books on dogs so...)

Con Air is awesome, what villain is as cool as Cyrus the Virus & ya can't beat that killer mullet Cage had & of course Steve Buscemi.

If they could get Cage to channel his persona from Port Of Call New Orleans, this would be GOLDEN!

Willing to give this the benefit of a doubt just because of Cusack and seeing him play a serial killer.

Directed by the governor of Wisconsin?

Yeah, probably not.

Cusack actually could make a terrific serial killer, I think.
