Duo sign on for Schumacher action-adventure pic

Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage have decided to “Trespass,” signing on to play a married couple in Nu Image/Millennium Films’ action-adventure. Joel Schumacher directs.

Nu Image/Millennium is aiming for an August production start in Louisiana. Irwin Winkler, Avi Lerner and Danny Dimbort will produce.

Story, written by Karl Gajdusek and Eli Richbourg, centers on a husband and wife taken hostage by four brutal perpetrators seeking easy cash. Complications ensue amid the unexpected discovery of betrayal and deception.

“Trespass” marks the fourth collaboration between Cage and Nu Image/Millennium Films following the recently wrapped 3D adventure “Drive Angry,” “The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “The Wicker Man.”

Exec producers on “Trespass” are Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson and Rene Besson.

Cage will be seen next month in Disney’s “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.” Kidman is in Sony’s romantic comedy “Just Go With It,” due out in February.
