First images from Alaskan serial killer flick Frozen Ground with Nicolas Cage and John Cusack

The first images from the Alaskan serial killer flick FROZEN GROUND, starring Nicolas Cage, John Cusack, 50 Cent, and Vanessa Hudgins have appeared online.  It's the first feature from director Scott Walker and tells the real-life story of serial killer Robert Hansen, who would lure strippers to his car and then kidnap them at gunpoint, fly them to his cabin, then rape and kill them.  It's been suggested, but never proven, that he would "hunt" his victims when he was done with them, possibly setting them free in the woods and pursuing them like wild game.

Take a look:

And here's a synopsis:

“Frozen Ground” follows Alaskan detective Glenn Flothe  (Cage) as he sets out to end the murderous rampage of Robert Hansen (Cusack), a serial killer who has gone unnoticed for 13 years. As the bodies of street girls start to add up in Anchorage, fear strikes a chord with the public.  Risking his life, Detective Flothe goes on a personal manhunt to find the killer before the next body surfaces. When a seventeen year old escapee reveals key information about the case, Flothe is finally able to trail the killer. But will he catch him in time to save the next victim?"

We haven't had a good serial killer pic in a long while, so I'm hoping that this will be a solid entry into the genre.  I know Cage can be wishy-washy, but every five or six movies he seems to pull off a good one.  Cusack is always solid and Hudgens is...hot. 

FROZEN GROUND is expected to be released in the fall.

Extra Tidbit: I actually live in Alaska and saw them filming this at one of the strip clubs in Anchorage. I was, uh, in the neighborhood, so to speak.
