MTV reports that Pierce Brosnan and Nicolas Cage will star in director Roman Polanski’s political thriller The Ghost.
The film, based on Robert Harris’ novel of the same name, centers on a ghostwriter who is hired to complete the memoirs of a former British prime minister. He uncovers secrets that put his own life in jeopardy.
Brosnan would play the prime minister, Adam Lang, and Cage the ghostwriter.
Most of the story takes place in an oceanfront house during the middle of winter.
Robert Benmussa and Alain Sarde will produce the film, slated to begin shooting in Europe next fall.
