    Prisoners Of The Ghostland (Sion Sono, Nicolas Cage) (2019?)

    "Nicolas Cage has been set to star in Prisoners of the Ghostland, a post-apocalyptic action thriller that will mark the English-language debut of Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono."

    "Ghostland, penned by Aaron Hendry and Safai, centers on notorious criminal Hero (Cage) 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."

    That's one Sono film that I'll be avoiding like the plague. Along with this bullshit John Woo remake.

    It could be worse. He could have made Shinjuku Swan 3

    In fact, by recent standards, this seems more interesting than the average Sono IMO.

    That's certainly true. He's been on a real downward spiral. He's had more than his fair share of duds of late. I literally fell asleep watching THE WHISPERING STAR and THE LAND OF HOPE was absolutely wretched as well. I just don't have faith in Sono turning it around with his first foray into the English market especially with an idiot like Cage.

    Sounds like this is actually happening as Cage recently talked about it at a film festival in Macau:

    I’m thrilled about it! It’s unlike anything I’ve ever read before. It might be the wildest movie I’ve ever made, and that’s saying something. It’s out there. I wear a skintight black leather jumpsuit with grenades attached to different body parts, and if I don’t rescue the governor’s daughter from this state line where they’re all ghosts and bring her back they’re gonna blow me up. It’s just crazy. It’s way out there.

    Imogen Poots has joined the cast, financing is in place and filming is set to start this spring. If and how recent reports of director Sion Sono being hospitalized with a heart attack will affect that schedule remains to be seen.

    Sofia Boutella, Ed Skrein, Teresa Ruiz, Tak Sakaguchi and Bill Moseley have all joined the cast, with filming set to commence in Japan this month.

    I'd be really excited about this if we didn't live in the CGI era.
