Nicolas Cage has joined the cast of the upcoming psychological thriller EXIT 147. The film is set to re-team the actor with Leaving Las Vegas director Mike Figgis. Written by Travis Milloy, the film follows a group of three people, each in their own stories that intertwine, leading the characters into sadistic mind games. Cage is set as a police officer, with the other characters being a woman that is trying to escape her abusive partner, and a man that Cage arrests. Back in 2013, Taylor Kitsch was attached to the project, but has since left. The film will shoot in January.
Known for his roles in the films Valley Girl, the National Treasure series and Moonstruck, Cage is set to star in the upcoming action film USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage.
