Nicolas Cage is set to star in the action thriller I Am Wrath for Emmett/Furla Films.  Deadline reports that Cage will reteam with the company after previously working together on the serial killer thriller The Frozen Ground with John Cusack and Vanessa HudgensI Am Wrath centers on a man who turns vigilante after he uncovers a thick plot of police corruption following the murder of his wife.  He sets out to serve justice on his own and “destroy those who abuse their power.”  It’s a premise in which Cage could really be set loose, and making things even sweeter is the fact that The French Connection and The Exorcist helmer William Friedkin is circling the director’s chair.

Production is scheduled to get underway in February with a script by Paul Sloan, so Friedkin will have to make a final decision soon.  He most recently directed the polarizing drama Killer Joe with Matthew McConaughey, which ruffled quite a few feathers with its NC-17 rating.  Cage recently signed on to star in David Gordon Green’s (Pineapple Express) southern drama Joe.
