Panos Cosmatos, the director of the incredibly underrated Beyond the Black Rainbow is finally back and teaming with, get this, Nicolas Cage!
Here’s the official festival poster of for the upcoming action-thriller Mandy, which will have its World Premiere at this week’s Sundance Film Festival. One thing stands out: there’s going to be a chainsaw battle!
“Set in 1983, Cage plays Red Miller, a broken and haunted man, who hunts the unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life.”
Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roache also star in the film, with Ned Dennehy, Olwen Fouéré, Richard Brake, Bill Duke and Sam Louwyk rounding out the cast for the project, which just wrapped principal photography in Belgium.
The film is being produced by Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller and Elijah Wood for SpectreVision, Nate Bolotin for XYZ, and Adrian Politowski for Umedia, and is being executive produced by Nick Spicer, Lisa Whalen, Todd Brown, Martin Metz, Peter Bevan, Christopher Figg, and Robert Whitehouse, with Umedia and Piccadilly Pictures financing.
XYZ also worked with Cage on Brian Taylor’s Mom and Dad, which played at TIFF.
