Nicolas Cage will reteam with director Dominic Sena for the supernatural thriller “Season of the Witch” for Relativity Media.

Story chronicles the journey of 14th century knights transporting a girl suspected of being the witch responsible for spreading the Black Plague.

Bragi Schut Jr. penned the screenplay.

Film, which had been in development at Columbia Pictures, will be produced by Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Alex Gartner.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in early November in Austria and Hungary.

“Season of the Witch” marks the second collaboration between Atlas and Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity. Earlier this year, the two companies brought the Jason Statham starrer “The Bank Job” to the bigscreen.

Cage previously worked with Sena on “Gone in Sixty Seconds.”
