According to Variety, Nicholas Cage's next film will be director Neil LaBute's long-gestating project The Wicker Man, a remake of the 1973 thriller.

LaBute will direct from his own adapted screenplay.

The story follows a sheriff investigating the disappearance of a young girl on a remote island off the coast of Maine. His hopes of unraveling the girl's disappearance become increasingly uncertain when he discovers evidence of pagan rituals.

Cage will be seen up next in The Weather Man and is currently in production in Austrailia on the comic book adaptation, Ghost Rider.
