Thesp to star with Cage, Moore in sci-fi thriller

Jessica Biel is set to star with Nicolas Cage and Julianne Moore in “Next,” the sci-fi action thriller based on Philip K. Dick novel “The Golden Man.” Lee Tamahori is directing the Gary Goldman script.

Cage will play a man who can see the future and alter its course. Biel will play his love interest, whom he has to save from terrorists. He’s on the run from the FBI, which wants to use him to prevent a global terrorist threat.

Biel will take the job after starring in “Home of the Brave,” an Irwin Winkler-directed indie in which she plays a young soldier who returns from Iraq and tries to get on with her life with her two children after losing one of her arms in an explosion.

Cage, Todd Garner, Norm Golightly, Graham King and Arne Schmidt are producing “Next.”
