Nicolas Cage and John Cusack Eye The Frozen Ground

ON

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack are likely to star in a feature entitled The Frozen Ground, based on the story of serial killer Robert Hansen. Deadline has the news, saying that Cusack would play Hansen with Cage the police officer who teams with an escaped victim to catch him.

Responsible for the deaths of somewhere between 17 and 21 individuals, Hansen lived in Anchorage, Alaska and, despite a somewhat troubled past, was married with two children and served as a well-known member of the community. After his conviction in 1983, it was theorized that, for years, Hansen had been kidnapping women and then releasing them into the desolate Alaskan wilderness to hunt them for sport.

Newcomer Scott Walker will make his feature film debut as both writer and director of the project.
