Burstyn and Sobieski Climb Aboard LaBute's "Wicker Man" Redo

by | August 10, 2005 | Comments

Joining Nicolas Cage in Neil LaBute‘s new remake of "The Wicker Man" are the celebrated veteran Ellen Burstyn and the young & cute Leelee Sobieski, at least according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the 1973 British thriller (and bona-fide cult classic), the remake covers the same story from the original: It "centers on a police officer (Cage) who is investigating the disappearance of a girl in a small cultlike community."

Ms. Sobieski will play a barmaid who helps the policeman out; Ms. Burstyn will play the community matriarch and head cult-woman.

"The Wicker Man" is presently in production up in Vancouver.
