Worldview on board ‘Joe’

Drama stars Nicolas Cage with David Gordon Green helming

Worldview Entertainment is coming on board to finance and produce David Gordon Green’s drama “Joe,” starring Nicolas Cage.

Film is written by Gary Hawkins, based on the novel of the same title by Larry Brown.Shooting is set to start in November in Texas.

Deal was announced Friday at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival. WestEnd Films will handle international sales and introduce the film to foreign buyers at Toronto.

CAA, which packaged and arranged financing for “Joe,” represents the film’s domestic distribution rights.

Lisa Muskat, David Gordon Green and Worldview CEO Christopher Woodrow will produce alongside Derrick Tseng. Worldview’s Molly Conners, Maria Cestone, Sarah Johnson Redlich and Hoyt David Morgan will executive produce alongside Brad Coolidge, Melissa Coolidge and Todd Labarowski for Dreambridge Films, which is making an investment in the film.

Jody Hill and Danny McBride will also exec produce for Rough House.

“Joe” centers on an ex-con who becomes the unlikeliest of role models to a 15-year-old boy, the oldest child of a homeless family ruled by a drunk, worthless father. Together they try to find a path to redemption and the hope for a better life in the world of small town Mississippi.

Worldview is in pre-production on Eli Roth’s “The Green Inferno” and announced Thursday that it is financing and producing Ti West’s horror thriller “The Sacrament.” It wrapped two films this summer: Guillaume Canet’s crime thriller “Blood Ties” and Atom Egoyan’s West Memphis Three biopic “Devil’s Knot.”
