“X-Men” and “Taken” actress Famke Janssen has been set to star opposite Nicolas Cage in the Nick Powell-directed high-concept indie action film “Primal” for The Pimienta Film Company.
Richard Leder penned the story in which Cage plays a big-game hunter who has booked passage on a Hispanic freighter with a fresh haul of exotic and deadly animals from the Amazon.
On the same trip is a political assassin being extradited to the U.S in secret, and when he escapes he releases the captive animals, throwing the ship into chaos.
Janssen will play a neurologist lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. Luillo Ruiz will produce the film which begins filming April 10th in Puerto Rico.
