According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leelee Sobieski and Ellen Burstyn are joining Nicolas Cage in Neil LaBute's indie The Wicker Man, produced by Millenium Films, Equity Pictures and Emmett/Furla Films.
A remake of a 1973 British horror film, Wicker Man centers on a police officer (Cage) who is investigating the disappearance of a girl in a small cultlike community. Sobieski plays a barmaid who is Cage's confidant. Burstyn plays the head of the cult.
The film is shooting in Vancouver.
It has been a busy year for Sobieski, who has a slew of upcoming films including Dungeon Siege, Heavens Fall, Dark Places and The Optimist. Her credits include Joy Ride, Eyes Wide Shut and Deep Impact as well as an Emmy-nominated turn as the title character in "Joan of Arc," which aired on CBS.
Burstyn recently reteamed with helmer Darren Aronofsky on the upcoming sci-fi thriller The Fountain. They worked together on Requiem for a Dream, for which Burstyn received a best actress Academy Award nomination. She is a six-time Oscar nominee, having won for 1974's Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.
