Ghost World's Terry Zwigoff Wants Nicolas Cage To Fall In Love With A Prostitute For Lost Melody

Producer Ed Pressman is currently putting together Lost Melody, the next picture from Ghost World and Crumb‘s Terry Zwigoff. He calls it:

a wonderful, darkly-funny drama in the tradition of such classics as The Blue Angel and Sunset Boulevard

Zwigoff and Melissa Axelrod‘s screenplay tells the story of a married man who falls in love with a prostitute. Zwigoff is said to want Nicolas Cage for the lead role, but there’s no word yet on who might play his wife or the prostitute.

Speaking to The Wrap about he possible casting of Cage, Pressman also had some other brilliant bait for his hook:

When considering a project, I think it most important that the director and the film live in the same universe and Terry certainly achieves this with Lost Melody.

And that’s it. It’s simple. I want to go back to Zwigoff’s universe. It’s a great place… to visit. I’m not sure if I’d want to stay. It’s too much like the real world. Almost exactly like it. Just more drole.

Cage seems very at home in that world, to my mind, every bit as much as he fit into Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant movie or David Lynch’s Wild At Heart, the Coen Bros. Raising Arizona or John Patrick Shanley’s Moonstruck. And people say he isn’t flexible.

I hope he takes the part.
