Nicholas Cage is one of the most hard working actors in Hollywood and Joe is just one of the projects that he has in the pipeline this year.
The movie sees the Oscar winning actor team up with director David Gordon Green for the adaptation of the Larry Brown novel.
Cage will take on the role of Joe Ransom in the film and he is joined on the cast list by Ronnie Gene Blevins, Tye Sheridan and Sue Rock.
Here is the first image from the film:
Director Green has been known for his comedy projects in recent years with Your Highness, The Sitter and TV series Eastbound & Down but this is a film that is set to take his career down a very different path.
Ransom is an ex-con, who is the unlikeliest of role models, meets a 15-year-old boy and is faced with the choice of redemption or ruin.
