Cage Set For Figgis’ “Exit,” Schrader’s “Dog”

Nicolas Cage is set to re-team with his “Leaving Las Vegas”” director Mike Figgis on thriller “Exit 147” at Umedia. Shooting begins in January.

Travis Milloy (“Pandorum”) penned the script in which Cage will star as a cop with a warped sense of justice. He arrests an abusive partner of a woman and all three become embroiled in a series of sadistic mind games.

Cage has also joined the cast of Paul Schrader’s contemporary crime thriller “Dog Eat Dog” at Arclight Films. Schrader and Matt Wilder penned the script while Mark Earl Burman and David Hillary will produce.

An adaptation of Eddie Bunker’s award-winning book, the story follows a trio of Los Angeles based ex-cons hired for a kidnapping. When the botched abduction goes awry, the cons find themselves on the run.
