Nicolas Cage in Muslim Drama The Vanished

You can call Nicolas Cage a lot of things, but “lazy” isn’t one of them. The star of “Next”, who has just wrapped the Pang Brothers’ remake of their own movie “Bangkok Dangerous”, is already set to star in Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad’s latest, the Muslim-themed drama “The Vanished”. In the film, Cage will play a father who goes in search of his college-aged American-born Muslim son, who has gone missing overseas. One guess where the kid ends up, and it rhymes with Holy Moley Tar. Hany Abu-Assad’s last film was the suicide bomb-themed “Paradise Now”, which was nominated for an Academy Award in 2005.

Cage first plans to star for director Darren Aronofsky in indie drama “The Wrestler” in January. He jumps right into “The Vanished” in April. Thesp most recently wrapped a remake of “Bangkok Dangerous,” as well as the sequel “National Treasure: Book of Secrets,” which Disney opens Dec. 21.
