Cage plays 'Mandolin' again

After scheduling conflicts caused him to walk away from the project once (Daily Variety, July 22), Nicolas Cage is back in negotiations to star in the Working Title/Universal feature “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.”

“Notting Hill” helmer Roger Michell is directing the adaptation of Louis De Berniere’ novel, a sweeping love story set on the idyllic Greek isle of Cephalonia during World War II.

Cage previously entered negotiations to star in the pic nearly three months ago (Daily Variety, June 7), but later dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. It’s not clear what has been resolved since that time.

However, in July, the actor added another starring role to his upcoming roster when he signed to topline Beacon Communications’ “Family Man” for Universal. “Family Man” is slated to go before the cameras in December, leaving Cage available to shoot “Mandolin” in April in Italy, although these dates are likely to change.
