Vanessa Hudgens joins Nic Cage and John Cusack for Frozen Ground

09.12.2011

Life after High School Musical hasn't exactly been Rainbow Road for Vanessage Hudgens. She had a nude picture scandal and even worse, appeared in SUCKER PUNCH (begin comment thread flamewar).

But now she's trying to expand with some more serious roles, and she's just joined the cast of FROZEN GROUND, the film based on true events surrounding a notorious predator in Alaska who abducted 24 women, flew them to the Alaskian wilderness and hunted them. Like for sport? Seriously? I feel like I should have heard of this before.

Hudgens is playing the only one of his victims to escape, but when she tried to tell her story no one believed her. I was surprised to learn that Cusack, not Cage was in the creepy murderer role, rather Cage has once again found himself another law enforcement part as a state trooper who finds Hudgens.

The film starts shooting in Alaska this October and will be out sometime next year. It's the directing debut of Scott Walker, who also wrote the script.

Extra Tidbit: Read the true story of Robert Hansen, the killler Cusack's playing. Crazy stuff.

It'll be cool to see Nic Cage & John Cusack together again.

"Sorry boss, but there's only two men I trust. One of them's me...The other's not you."

...sorry, I couldn't resist.

Since this is based on a true story it'll probably be very different but I remember a chessy, but entertaining 80's thriller called "The Hunted" w/ Harry Hamlin & Mädchen Amick that had a very similar plot.

I think we can all agree that Vanessa Hudgens is a complete hottie. Sucker Punch was worth it for the costumes on her and the other girls, if nothing else.

Greed wins again

This is yet another example of Hollywood glorifying a monster for the purpose of making a quick buck. If they insist on making the movie, they should at least donate some of the profits to the victims' families or to charity.

She's hot.

And based off the premise and who is playing who, I think this movie has promise to be a real fun, horror show.
