Oh, Nicolas Cage. Just when it seemed he was putting paycheck gigs behind him by lining up movies with William Friedkin and David Gordon Green, along comes "Outcast" to remind is, that if a project crosses his desk and promises a fully stocked catering table, he'll probably do it.

Oh, Nicolas Cage. Just when it seemed he was putting paycheck gigs behind him by lining up movies with William Friedkin and David Gordon Green, along comes "Outcast" to remind is, that if a project crosses his desk and promises a fully stocked catering table, he'll probably do it.

The actor is attached with charisma-free Hayden Christensen in the picture that will take place in 10th century China, and follow a warrior who has to save a princess. Our only interest in this is if Cage plays the princess and Christensen the warrior, but something tells us that won't happen. It's also not explained what Cage and Christensen are doing in 10th century China. But perhaps the script by James Dormer is smarter than we think, but considering the movie will mark the feature debut by stuntman Nick Powell ("Resident Evil: Retribution," "The Three Musketeers"), maybe not.

Cage + Christensen + 10th century China + stunt man debut....what could possibly go wrong? That's what reps will say as they brush away fears when the project is repped at the American Film Market next month. If all goes "well," this will shoot next year. [The Wrap]
