Wildly creative performer Nicolas Cage has experienced a career resurgence recently, starring in the likes of David Gordon Green’s Joe, Brian Taylor’s maniacal Mom and Dad, and of course, Panos Cosmatos’ surreal masterwork, Mandy. The latter featured the Academy Award-winning actor giving his best performance since 1995’s Leaving Las Vegas; fully embracing the absurdity of Cosmatos’ material.
It was the unexpected hit of 2018, and now, we’re due for more Cage madness. The celebrated star is set to collaborate once again with Mandy producers Spectrevision on a new H.P. Lovecraft adaptation. Color Out of Space is one of the horror-fiction writers most regarded stories and tells the tale of a meteorite crashing to Earth and mutating life and time. The events are experienced first hand by the Gardner family.
It's happening, people. SpectreVision is teaming up with Nic Cage, Richard Stanley and another all-star cast to bring you HP Lovecraft's 'Color Out of Space.' It's eldritch taken straight to the edge. Read all about the project at … https://t.co/pvE0JF34tH pic.twitter.com/RDdRrEFl94— SpectreVision (@_SpectreVision) January 23, 2019
This has certainly gotten fans of Cage and Lovecraft excited, but also followers of another admired figure. The film will be directed by Richard Stanley, marking the cult director’s return to fiction feature-filmmaking after many years of absence. He worked on documentaries and shorts during this time, but is most known for his early cult output; 1990’s Hardware and 1992’s Dust Devil.
