Nicolas Cage To Headline Supernatural Thriller 'Between Worlds'

Well, at least this Nicolas Cage movie won't catch us totally off guard. Deadline reports he'll star in supernatural thriller, Between Worlds, which incudes Run Lola Run's Franka Potente. I'd much rather see these two in a Run Lola Run sequel, but you can't have everything.

The film is directed and written by Spanish helmer Maria Pulera, and co-stars Penelope Mitchell Garrett Clayton.  Cage plays Joe, "a down-on-his-luck truck driver haunted by the memory of his deceased wife and child. He meets Julie (Potente), a spiritually gifted woman who enlists Joe in a desperate effort to find the lost soul of her comatose daughter, Billie (Mitchell). But the spirit of Joe’s dead wife Mary proves stronger, possessing the young woman’s body and determined to settle her unfinished business with the living."

Sounds like something out of The Conjuring or Insidious, so maybe this will be one of Cage's better under-the-radar projects. One can hope, right? I keep hoping he'll have another unexpectedly good, box office hit like Knowing. Maybe this will be it?
