Deadline is reporting that Nicolas Cage is set to star in the cop action thriller 10 Double Zero, which has been written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Nick Vallelonga (Green Book) along with Paul Sloan (I Am Wrath) and Christian Sesma (Vigilante Diaries).
Sesma will direct the film, which “is set in the stifling heat of Louisiana and will follow two police officers who take on a personal vendetta to hunt down cop killers, but as they get closer to solving the crime, they find themselves targets of a conspiracy in the ranks of the police force and the investigation leads right back to them.
“We are thrilled to introduce 10 Double Zero to audiences around the globe for the first time in Cannes,” said producer Jeff Bowler of Wonderfilm Media. “With Nick’s amazing script and his multiple-award-winning track record, combined with the legendary talent of Nicolas Cage in the starring role, this commercially driven thriller is certain to entertain audiences all over the world, and we’ve been gratified to have already enjoyed very strong sales here in Cannes.”
10 Double Zero joins a host of projects on Cage’s upcoming slate, which includes the post-apocalyptic action horror Prisoners of the Ghostland, H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Color Out of Space and martial arts sci-fi Jiu Jitsu.
