Neil LaBute’s 2006 take on The Wicker Man has evolved from “wow, that’s a terrible remake” to, well, a number of things…
A gem to purveyors of bad cinema. A clip reel of star Nicolas Cage’s acting spiraling out of control. A great source for those who like to create animated GIF files of Cage being attacked by bees…or dressing like a bear and punching someone out. Oh, then there’s Cage kicking Leelee Sobieski across a room. Yeah, that’s a good one.
While a sequel to the redo is highly unlikely, Cage believes there’s some material to explore in a follow-up.
Hideo Nakata and Nicolas Cage working together? Certainly a possibility. The Wicker Man in Japan? Not so much.
