CANNES: Nicolas Cage Starring in Crime Thriller ‘The Trust’

Nicolas Cage and Jack Huston will star in crime thriller “The Trust,” with Alex and Ben Brewer on board to direct.

The Highland Film Group is handling sales at Cannes.

Molly Hassell and Braxton Pope (“The Canyons”) are producing “The Trust” as a Hassell Free Production in association with U.K.-based Electric Shadow Fund, which is providing financing.

Ben Brewer and Adam Hirsch are co-writing the script, which centers on two corrupt police officers discovering a mysterious vault in connection with an active drug investigation — and the ensuing complications that emerge when they decide to rob it.

Exec producers are Mike Nilon and Highland Film Group’s Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier.

Cage was most recently seen in “Joe.” Huston starred on “Boardwalk Empire” and was most recently seen in “American Hustle.”

Pope is collaborating with Kanye West on several visual projects and has produced music videos directed by the Brewer brothers.

Cage is represented by CAA, manager Mike Nilon, and attorney Patrick Knapp at Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal Laviolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman. Huston is represented by UTA.
