Variety brings news of an impending horror remake that’s beginning to sound pretty interesting: director Neil LaBute ("In the Company of Men") will be mounting a remake of Robin Hardy’s 1973 cult classic "The Wicker Man," and the rather busy Nicolas Cage has just signed on for the lead role (played by Edward "The Equalizer" Woodward in the original film.) "The Wicker Man" tells the tale of one detective’s search for a missing girl on a remote New England island.
