Revolution turns to sci-fi

Thesp to play man who can see the future

Nicolas Cage will star and Lee Tamahori will direct the action thriller “Next” for Revolution Studios.

Cage will also produce the pic, based on “The Golden Man,” a story by sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick. Gary Goldman, who adapted a Dick story into “Total Recall,” penned the script.

Cage will produce along with his Saturn Films partner Norm Golightly. Goldman will be an executive producer, along with Jason Koornick, who holds the rights to Dick’s short story. Derek Dauchy will oversee the project for Revolution.

Cage will play a man who can see the future and change events before they happen. Eventually, he is forced to choose between saving the world and saving himself.

“This is a movie that translates the excitement of the videogame experience into the cinema,” Goldman said.

Goldman optioned the story and wrote the script on spec. He brought it to Saturn, which teamed with CAA to approach Revolution’s Todd Garner with it.

Pic is expected to start shooting next summer.

Cage will next be seen in Disney’s “National Treasure,” opening Nov. 19. Tamahori is finishing Revolution’s “XXX: State of the Union,” starring Ice Cube, Samuel L. Jackson and Willem Dafoe. Dick’s stories have provided material for big-budget sci-fi pics including “Blade Runner,” “Minority Report,” “Paycheck” and Warner Independent Pictures’ upcoming Keanu Reeves starrer “A Scanner Darkly.”
