Focus Features has arranged for Nicolas Cage to join the ranks of The Vanished.

Don’t get excited, Cage-haters — this isn’t an allusion to some sort of forced exile for the actor’s performances in The Wicker Man, Snake Eyes, or Gone in 60 Seconds; rather, it’s the title of his next starring vehicle. Variety reports that Cage has signed on for the Hany Abu-Assad-directed feature, which the article summarizes as follows:

Thriller, penned by Larysa Kondracki and Eilis Kirwan, concerns a father who goes in search of his college-aged American-born Muslim son, who’s missing overseas.

Before starting The Vanished in April, Cage will star in The Wrestler, which we discussed last week (and is apparently being directed by Darren Aronofsky). He’ll next be seen in National Treasure: Book of Secrets, opening December 21.
