'The Tree Of Life' Star Tye Sheridan Joins David Gordon Green's 'Joe' Starring Nicolas Cage

While Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" undoubtedly marked the start of the ascent of Jessica Chastain, it also provided a great debut for its young stars, Hunter McCracken and Tye Sheridan. While the former has yet to book any more projects, the latter has been making his way onto more films, most recently starring in another Cannes premeire, Jeff Nichols' "Mud." And Sheridan is keeping it southern, joining a movie that will have him getting in the Cage.

While Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" undoubtedly marked the start of the ascent of Jessica Chastain, it also provided a great debut for its young stars, Hunter McCracken and Tye Sheridan. While the former has yet to book any more projects, the latter has been making his way onto more films, most recently starring in another Cannes premeire, Jeff Nichols' "Mud." And Sheridan is keeping it southern, joining a movie that will have him getting in the Cage.

Sheridan has joined David Gordon Green's "Joe" in a role that will find him co-starring with none other than Nicolas Cage. Welcome to Hollywood, kid. Penned by Gary Hawkins, and based on the 2003 novel by Larry Brown, the film tells the story of the unlikely bond between an ex-con (Cage) who becomes a role model to a 15 year-old (Sheridan) from a broken home, and their journey on the path to redemption and the quest for a better life in southern town. Of course, the wild card here is Cage, especially since we haven't seen the chops of the once Oscar contending actor in a long, long time. But hopefully this pairing and material will bring out the actor we no longer recognize.

Production on the movie begins on Halloween, which we hope isn't a bad omen. No distribution details or whatnot yet, but the picture will likely draw strong attention at the American Film Market where it will be repped later this week. Worldview Entertainment is financing and producing. [Variety]
