Nic Cage Channels Inner-‘Jason’ for Role in New Film ‘Mandy’

Cinematic horror icon Jason Vorhees is about to GET IN THE CAGE!  According to a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Oscar-winning thespian Nicolas Cage admits that he based his character from the upcoming film Mandy on the legendary (and impossible-to-kill) campground slasher.  It is not yet known if the producers of the Friday the 13th franchise are flattered or enraged by the actor’s revelation.

Cage will play a lumberjack named Red in the revenge thriller, which is due out on September 14th.  A mild-mannered every-man for the first half of the film, Red turns into a homicidal vigilante in the second half when his remote cabin is the scene of a home invasion which sees his lover (Mandy) fall victim to the violence.  Red blazes a path of vengeance amped-up by a liquid hallucinogen as he hunts down his tormentors.  It’s well-worn territory (Crank, Death Sentence, the entire Death Wish series), but Cage’s indication that he’s channeling his inner-psycho for the role adds a nicely-textured layer of horror and the supernatural to the entire equation. read more
