Following his role as Dracula in the horror-comedy Renfield, Nicolas Cage will star in the upcoming psychological thriller The Surfer from director Lorcan Finnegan (Vivarium).
THR reports, “Mossbank, the partnership between Sculptor Media and Raven and headed by Michael Rothstein and Sam Hall, is handling international sales and introducing The Surfer to buyers at the Cannes Market.”
In The Surfer, a man (Cage) returns to his beachside hometown in Australia many years after building a life for himself in the U.S. He is humiliated in front of his teenage son by a local gang of surfers who claim strict ownership over the secluded beach of his childhood.
Wounded, Cage’s character declares war against the gang. But as the conflict escalates, the stakes spin wildly out of control, taking “The Surfer” to the edge of his sanity.
Filming will begin this September in Australia. The premiere date has not been announced.
