The Action Film Starring Nicolas Cage and Jaeden Martell In the Sand and Stones!
According to Deadline, Oscar winner Nicolas Cage and Jaeden Martell (It films, Mr. Harrigan s Phone) have signed on for the leading roles in the upcoming survival action thriller movie Sand and Stones. Lost in Space alum Maxwell Jenkins and Fate: The Winx Saga star Sadie Coverall has also been cast in the film.
Ben Brewer is the film’s director, working from a script by Mike Nilon. In the movie, Cage will play Paul, the father of Joseph and Thomas, twin adolescent boys who are portrayed by Martell and Jenkins, respectively. The story follows Paul and his sons, who have managed to eke out an existence but live in constant fear, in a post-apocalyptic and sparsely populated world. Until they are in grave danger, at which point they must act quickly to survive.
Ben Brewer is the perfect director to bring Mike Nilon’s apocalyptic and explosive script to life because of his acute eye and distinctive vision, according to a statement from Highland’s COO Delphine Perrier. The Trust was the first movie we made with Ben, and we are forward to working with this amazing director once more.
Ireland has already begun production. Nylon, Cage, David Wulf, Arianne Fraser, Delphine Perrier, and Braxton Pope all serve as producers for the movie under Highland Film Group. Slava Vladimirov, Jared Underwood, and Andrew Robinson are the executive producers.
