Nicolas Cage has been set to star in the new thriller I Am Wrath for Emmett/Furla Films. William Friedkin is also circling the project to direct, as a follow-up to Killer Joe.

Paul Sloan wrote the screenplay that follows Stanley (Nicolas Cage), a man who becomes frustrated with the cops when they fail to find his wife's killer. When he uncovers widespread police corruption, he becomes a vigilante, sworn to take down these crooked cops. The script is based on a story by Yvan Gauthier.

Randall Emmett and George Furla are producing alongside 50 Cent, Barry Brooker, Stan Wertlieb, Nick Vallelonga, Richard Salvatore, and David Omston.

Lionsgate will handle domestic distribution, with production scheduled to begin in February.
