Our lord and savior Nicolas Cage has made some pretty goddamn wild movies, including this year’s Mandy, so when he says he’s just made the wildest one he’s ever made, our ears perk up and we reach for our wallets. At the 3rd International Film Festival and Awards Macao this past weekend, Cage did indeed hype that one of his next is perhaps his wildest!
Relayed by Screen Anarchy, Cage hyped up the English-language debut of Sion Sono (Suicide Club, Why Don’t You Play in Hell?), which is titled Prisoners of the Ghostland.
“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,” Cage told the crowd. “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.”
He added, “It’s just crazy. It’s way out there.”
The film has been described as a supernatural action-thriller.
