Nicolas Cage is set to star as a big-game hunter in the independent action thriller “Primal” for Wonderfilm Media.
In the story, Cage’s character works for zoos and has booked passage on a Greek shipping freighter with a fresh haul of exotic and deadly animals from the Amazon – including a rare white Jaguar.
Two days into the journey, a political assassin being extradited to the U.S in secret in the hold escapes. In the process, he releases the captive animals and throws the ship into chaos.
Veteran stunt coordinator Nick Powell will direct from a script by Richard Leder. Daniel Grodnik is producing and filming begins October 23rd in Puerto Rico.
