Nicolas Cage is returning to horror in Voltage Films’ supernatural thriller Pay the Ghost with Uli Edel (The Baader Meinhof Complex) directing, says Variety.
“Cage will play a hard-working NYU English professor bucking for tenure when his 8-year-old son mysteriously vanishes from a Halloween day parade.”
The screenplay was written by Dan Kay, based on a short story of the same name written by fantasy novelist Tim Lebbon.
Voltage is launching sales at Cannes and currently casting the principal female role with the aim to begin shooting in the late summer.
Cage has been in and out of the genre from the 1988 Vampire’s Kiss to Ghost Rider, Season of the Witch, 8MM, The Wicker Man, Drive Anrgy and even Grindhouse.
