Next: According to Variety, Nicolas Cage will star and Lee Tamahori will direct the action thriller Next for Revolution Studios.

Cage will also produce the pic, based on "The Golden Man," a story by sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick. Gary Goldman, who adapted a Dick story into Total Recall, penned the script.

Cage will play a man who can see the future and change events before they happen. Eventually, he is forced to choose between saving the world and saving himself.

"This is a movie that translates the excitement of the videogame experience into the cinema," Goldman said.

The pic is expected to start shooting next summer.
