Nicolas Cage to Play Al Capone


MTV reports that Nicolas Cage will reteam with Snake Eyes director Brian DePalma for The Untouchables: Capone Rising.

Cage will play a younger version of Al Capone, the character made famous by Robert De Niro. “Capone Rising” is a prequel to DePalma’s 1987 classic The Untouchables, and will revolve around the early dealings between Capone and Irish cop Jimmy Malone, a role that garnered an Oscar for Sean Connery.

Principal photography will begin in October.
