Variety is reporting that Nicolas Cage has signed on to star in the indie thriller Looking Glass, which is being helmed by music video and commercials director Dori Oskowitz from a script by Jerry Rapp (Mojave Phone Booth) and Matthew Wilder (Dog Eat Dog).
The film will follow a couple “who, after experiencing a tragic loss, purchases a desert motel only to discover a series of disturbing, unexplained events that take place within one of the frequently requested rooms.”
“After partnering with Dori early in his career, I am thrilled to bring this remarkable story of voyeurism and grief to the screen with my partners at Highland and Prettybird,” said producer Braxton Pope. “The opportunity to work with Nicolas Cage again, one of our very finest actors, is incredibly exciting.”
Cage can currently be seen alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Oliver Stone’s Snowden, and has several films incoming, including the aforementioned Dog Eat Dog, war drama USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, horror Mom and Dad, revenge thriller Vengeance: A Love Story, and Army of One, which sees him on the trail of Osama bin Laden.
