Nicolas Cage Set For Wicker Man Remake

Hollywood star NICOLAS CAGE is gearing up to lead a remake of the classic British horror movie THE WICKER MAN.

In the original 1973 film, EDWARD WOODWARD plays a Christian policeman sent to a remote Scottish island to investigate a child's disappearance. While there, he inadvertently gets tangled up in pagan rituals.

THE SHAPE OF THINGS director NEIL LaBUTE - who is behind the remake - says, "I'm moving the story from Britain to America.

"Nick Cage will play a cop who is looking into the disappearance of a young girl and stumbles on a pagan society existing in the modern world.

"Nick's character ends up on an island that has a very matriarchal society whose members are direct descendants of the Pilgrims.

"ANGELINA JOLIE and WINONA RYDER would be two great choices. It's a great film for actresses."
