Wow, talk about a rough couple of days for all the crew members of Joel Schumacher’s upcoming thriller Trespass. First, Nicolas Cage bowed out of the movie just weeks before it was to begin production in New Orleans. Then, the actor re-boarded the project, but switched roles for a third time, Millennium Films confirmed today. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
Originally, Cage was cast in the drama as Nicole Kidman’s husband, but opted to play one of the thieves who terrorizes the couple just weeks before production began. Well now it looks like the veteran actor has flip-flopped one more time, returning to play Kidman’s betrothed. Perhaps the role of the madman, in light of his poor showing in the recent The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, is less appealing to the constantly-working actor? Cameras begin rolling shortly. No word yet on who’s playing the thieves.
