Why, just a few days ago, he had signed on to star in a 3D action movie called Drive Angry (alternate title: Gone in 120 Seconds). Do you think that’s it for Cage? Could that possibly be all that he has on his plate right now, just as his Werner Herzog venture, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, is starting to make the festival rounds? Is this all??
NO! Now The Hollywood Reporter tells us that he’s signed on for a thriller called The Hungry Rabbit Jumps, to be directed by The Bank Job director Roger Donaldson. THR already used the outstanding headline “Rabbit gets a Cage!” and I would have felt just wrong reusing it.
The movie concerns a man who is the victim of a brutal crime and then joins an underground vigilante organization to help seek truth, justice, and the American way.
Producer Jim Stern calls the movie a thriller “in the best of the Hitchcockian tradition.” Now, I pride myself on being a guy who knows a thing or two about his Hitchcock and this does not sound like Hitchcock to me, sir.
