Cage’s ‘Dangerous’ liaison

Thesp tied to 'Bangkok'

Nicolas Cage is set to star in “Bangkok Dangerous,” a remake of the 1999 Thai film that will be helmed by the original’s directors, Oxide Pang Chun and Danny Pang.

Shooting begins in August in Asia, with Initial Entertainment Group financing.

Cage will play a cold-blooded hit man who heads to Bangkok to pull off four jobs, and winds up falling in love with a local girl and bonding with his errand boy.

Jason Richman (“Bad Company”) wrote the script. Blue Star Pictures partners William Sherak and Jason Shuman produce with Cage’s Saturn partner Norm Golightly and Initial’s Graham King. Initial controls worldwide distribution rights.

This will be the second English-language film for the Pang brothers, twins who just completed “Scarecrow” for Sony. Ghost House Pictures produced that pic with Blue Star. The Pangs’ thriller “The Eye” is being remade by Paramount Pictures and C/W Prods.

Cage is shooting Lee Tamahori’s “Next.” He’ll next be seen in the Oliver Stone-directed “World Trade Center” for Paramount.
