Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen are teaming up to star in a film set in 10th Century China. The Wrap reports that Cage and Christensen are attached to star in Outcast, which centers on a warrior who attempts to redeem himself by saving a princess. James Dormer is writing the script with stunt man Nick Powell set to make his directorial debut on the project. The pic is being shopped to buyers with the hopes of starting production next year. No other details are known about the plot, but one assumes that Christensen will play the aforementioned warrior.
Cage has been incredibly busy lately, attaching himself to star in David Gordon Green’s (Pineapple Express) southern drama Joe, director William Friedkin’s (Killer Joe) vigilante thriller I Am Wrath, and Richard Kelly’s (Donnie Darko) bizzare drama Amicus. On the other hand, Christensen has been rather quiet as of late, most recently starring in the 2010 thriller Takers.
