“Donnie Darko” director Richard Kelly is working with Nicolas Cage.
Production will soon get underway on a new true-crime flick entitled “Amicus,” Vulture reported Thursday.
The film stars Cage as a First Amendment attorney defending a publishing company on the stand for releasing a guide book for hit men. It will be Kelly’s first film since the 2009 cult thriller “The Box.”
This will be Cage’s first role as a lawyer in his currently over 50 movies-long career. Kelly’s Darko Entertainment confirmed a start date for January in Atlanta.
