Alicia Witt ( I Care a Lot ) and Blair Underwood ( Your Honor ) have joined the cast of Longlegs , the thriller with Nicolas Cage and Maika Monroe .
Osgood Perkins ( Gretel and Hansel ) wrote the film and is currently filming it in Vancouver.
At the center of the film is FBI agent Lee Harker (Monroe), a promising young recruit who is assigned to solve the case of an elusive serial killer (Cage). As the case grows more complex, Harker discovers ties to the occult and a personal connection to the ruthless killer, and must race against time to stop him before he takes the lives of another innocent family.
The film is financed and produced by C2 Motion Picture Group. Also producing is Nicolas Cage under his Saturn Films banner alongside Dan Kagan ( We Are Not Alone ), Brian Kavanaugh-Jones ( Insidious, Sinister ), Dave Caplan ( Babylon ) and Chris Ferguson ( Killer’s Doll ). Jason Cloth ( Joker , House of Gucci ), Fred Berger ( La La Land ) and John Friedberg ( Greenland ) are executive producers.
Nicolas Cage is in a very good phase of his career after finally paying off his debts. We recently saw him in Pig and The Talented Mr. C , while he has several upcoming projects in the near future, including the horror comedy Renfield , in which he will play Dracula, and the comedy Dream Scenario for A24 and producer Ari Aster ( Midsommar , Hereditary ).
