Moore mulls her ‘Next’ pic

'Forgotten' thesp lining up part in Dick adaptation

Revolution Studios is in negotiations with Julianne Moore to play the female lead in “Next” opposite Nicolas Cage.

Cage is also attached as a producer, while Lee Tamahori will direct the sci-fi thriller.

Gary Goldman adapted Philip K. Dick’s short story “The Golden Man.”

Moore would play a federal agent who’s looking for people who can help predict terrorist acts. Her search puts her in pursuit of a man (Cage) who has the ability to see his own future and take a different path if he chooses.

Before “Next” goes into production, Moore would most likely shoot “Freedomland” for Revolution and topper Joe Roth, who will helm the drama. “Freedomland” is aiming for a spring start date.

While Moore is busy with “Freedomland,” Cage would shoot Col’s “Ghost Rider” in Australia for writer-director Mark Steven Johnson. “Next” would then go into production in the second half of 2005.

Revolution has been a favorite stop for Moore of late. She starred in “The Forgotten” and “The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio” for the studio before lining up “Freedomland” and “Next.”
