Cage Cuts Off His Untouchables

Nicolas Cage is no longer involved in Paramount and Relativity Media’s “The Untouchables: Capone Rising” reports Variety.

Cage had been in negotiations to star as the younger version of Al Capone in Brian De Palma’s prequel to the 1987 Oscar winner, but talks have been severed due to scheduling conflicts.

Gerard Butler has joined the cast as Jimmy Malone, played by Sean Connery in the original. Robert DeNiro played the older Capone in the original.
