Arquette and Cage star for Scorsese

First time on same screen for husband-wife thesp team

NEW YORK — Patricia Arquette will star alongside husband Nicolas Cage and Ving Rhames in the Martin Scorsese-directed “Bringing Out the Dead,” a co-production between Paramount and Touchstone produced by Scott Rudin and Barbara De Fina. Production begins next month in New York.

In the Paul Schrader-scripted film, Cage will play a burned-out paramedic who is haunted by the people he’s sent to save, and especially by the ones he couldn’t save. It marks the first time that Cage has co-starred in a movie with his wife, and the continuation of a busy year for the actress.

Arquette will be seen this fall starring with Woody Harrelson and Billy Crudup in the Stephen Frears-directed “Hi-Lo Country,” produced by Scorsese, and New Regency’s “Goodbye Lover,” directed by Roland Joffe. She recently completed MGM’s “Stigmata” with Gabriel Byrne and Nia Long.

After “Bringing Out the Dead,” Arquette will star in the David Rabe-scripted “In the Boom Boom Room,” a feature to be directed by two-time Oscar-winning documentarian Barbara Kopple and produced by John Roberdeau and Robert Geisler.

She is managed by Molly Madden of 3 Arts Entertainment and repped by UTA.
