Check this out guys – Bad Santa
helmer Terry Zwigoff
is set to direct, and Nicolas Cage
is attached to star in an upcoming indie drama titled Lost Melody
. Yep, an indie drama, where Cage will play a man who’s stuck in a bad marriage and (like that’s not enough) falls in love with a prostitute. Shocking news
Whatever. At this moment we know that Zwigoff will direct the whole thing from a script he co-wrote with Melissa Axelrod
, which centers on:
…a man who’s trapped in a marriage to a shrewish wife and falls in love with a prostitute.
And that’s bascially all we know about the plot.
Still, what definitely sounds promising is that Edward R. Pressman
(who’s set to produce the project) said that Lost Melody
is a wonderful darkly-funny drama in the tradition of such classics as The Blue Angel
and Sunset Boulevard
The big question now is – who will come on board to play Cage’s wife, and more importantly – who will play the above mentioned prostitute?
Guess we’ll soon have more updates to share, make sure you stay tuned!
