Famke Janssen Joins Nic Cage in Primal

Posted on: March 22nd, 2018

Turning batshit psychotic in Mom and Dad and battling with chainsaws in Mandy, good ol’ Nic Cage seems to be on something of a genre hot streak right now, whilst fully embracing the boggle-eyed crayzee that he does better than most. His next outing sounds even nuttier than either of the aforementioned, and joining him for the ride is X-Men star Famke Janssen (pictured above).

The film is Primal, and it stars Cage as a big game hunter who hops onboard a freighter ship transporting all manner of exotic and deadly Amazonian animals. The ship is also boarded by a political assassin being secretly extradited to the US, who escapes and releases all of the animals, throwing the freighter into man vs beast chaos!

Janssen will play a Navy Lieutenant and neurologist in the film, which was written by Richard Leder. Michael Sirow (Jeepers Creepers 3), Jeff Gum (Day of the Dead: Bloodline) and Tom Walker (Bomb City) also appear. Nick Powell will direct Primal, reteaming with Cage from 2014’s Outcast.

Filming is scheduled to begin on April 10th, in Puerto Rico.
