It’s Okay Everyone – Nicolas Cage WILL Star In Joel Schumacher’s Trespass After All

Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.

Nicolas Cage was signed on to appear in Joel Schumacher’s Trespass. He was to play the husband of Nicole Kidman’s character, the two of them victims of home invasion. Cam Gigandet and Jordana Spiro also have roles in the film, though it isn’t clear which ones.

Here’s its log line:

When sadistic armed intruders break into their isolated mansion in search of a fortune in diamonds, Kyle and Sarah Miller find themselves at the whim of volatile and game-playing sadists. During their frantic struggle to survive, shocking secrets are revealed that test their marriage as well as their nerves

Cage then had a change of heart and decided he’d prefer to play the leader of the intruders. This was apparently all okayed and the project just flexed around him. Anything for Mr. Cage, I suppose.

And then… he went AWOL in the Bahamas, apparently bailing on the film altogether. This was in the last few days, and less than two weeks ahead of the scheduled start in production. Aren’t you a little surprised movie stars don’t do this more often?

For a while there, Cage was fully incognito and nobody really knew if he was going to come back or stay vanished. Tonight’s update at Deadline, however, reveal that he’s back on, and wants to stay aboard the movie.

Only, he’s now going to play the husband once again. Fickle much?

He’s regularly left projects at a late juncture before, including The Wrestler and The Green Hornet. What was different this time? What persuaded him to come back? That’s the answer I want, more than what prompted him to flee in the first place.

Trespass should now start rolling imminently. Besides Cage, there’s nothing about this project that interests me yet… I really hope he doesn’t bail again, for the film’s sake.
