With just two weeks to go before filming begins, Nicholas Cage has pulled out of Joel Schumacher‘s Trespass, Deadline is reporting. Cage was to star along side Nicole Kidman, playing a husband who is kidnapped with his wife by a group of thugs looking for ransom. Cage’s departure leaves Schumacher and Co. scrambling to find a suitable replacement. Liev Schreiber is rumored to be in the running.
If there’s one thing to be said for Cage, it’s that he likes to work. And while he’s made some great movies, he also churns out horrible films without blinking an eye (The Wicker Man, Ghost Rider). So if he’s walking away from your project, it might be time to consider hanging up your director’s helmet.
See Nic Cage get his face stung off by bees after the jump…
