Nicolas Cage really seems to be putting a special focus on genre work at this point in his career, and he just signed on to star in another project that has our attention here at Arrow in the Head, the post-apocalyptic action thriller PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND.

Produced by XYZ Films, a company Cage recently worked with on the amazing-sounding genre film MANDY (pictured above; read Chris Bumbray's 8/10 review HERE), PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND will mark the English language debut of director Sion Sono, who has racked up over fifty credits working in his native Japan for the last thirty years.

Cage will be playing 

notorious criminal Hero, who is sent to rescue an abducted girl who has disappeared into a dark supernatural universe. They must break the evil curse that binds them and escape the mysterious revenants that rule the Ghostland, an East-meets-West vortex of beauty and violence.

The combination of Cage with things like "a dark supernatural universe" and a "vortex of beauty and violence" is a recipe that has already made PRISONERS OF THE GHOSTLAND something irresistible to me. This is a film I'm definitely going to have to check out when it's released. In the meantime, I'll be watching its progress closely.
