Worldwide Entertainment announced today that they will finance and produce director David Gordon Green’s (Pineapple Express) gritty, southern drama Joe.  Moreover, Nicolas Cage has been cast in the lead role of Joe, an ex-con who “becomes the unlikeliest of role models to 15 year old Gary Jones, the oldest child of a homeless family ruled by a drunk, worthless father.”  The story takes place in small town Mississippi and is based on the book of the same name by Larry Brown.  Green’s Eastbound and Down cohorts Danny McBride and Jody Hill will executive produce the adaptation.
