Take the premise of the Five Night at Freddy’s videogame, throw Nicolas Cage into the mix and you have ‘Wally’s Wonderland.’ Deadline brings word that Nicolas Cage has signed on to lead a genre film titled ‘Wally’s Wonderland.’
With Kevin Lewis (‘The Drop’) directing, from a screenplay by G.O. Parsons, the film will see Cage playing a quiet drifter tricked into a janitorial job at the now condemned Wally’s Wonderland. He is soon pulled into a living nightmare the threatening animatronic characters come to life. Fists fly, kicks land, titans clash — and only one side will make it out alive.
“For me there was always one actor and one actor only who could make this movie work,” said Lewis in a statement, “and that actor is Nic Cage. I’m thrilled to be working with him and can’t wait to see him go up against Wally and his gang of psychopathic misfits. I see this movie as Pale Rider vs Killer Klowns from Outer Space.”
Producers on the project include Landafar Entertainment, JD Entertainment, Saturn Films, Almost Never Films and Screen Media Ventures.
