When I read the stats on this movie. I couldn't help but wonder, due to the subject matter, is it going to be shot as more of a documentary and informative, or is it going to be dark and creepy?  Perhaps a bit of both?

Wow..Interesting point...From what I have read Gina. particularly in that article about the causes the film project hopes to help, it will be a fictional film based on true events, done in such a way as to show the plight and courage of the victims..so not a documentary but i would guess not necessarily 'entertainment' either?. But it is bound to be a chilling tale considering the subject matter.

The financiers and exec producers have been announced for upcoming Nic film, Frozen Ground. In relation to our discussion, this article is calling Frozen Ground "a fact based thriller" action

 

Toronto: Emmett/Furla And Envision Set $250 Million Film Fund

Emmett/Furla Films, a company that has been growing more ambitious in the film financing and production arena, has teamed with Stepan Martirosyan and Remington Chase’s Envision Entertainment to establish a new $250 million revolving equity and debt fund to finance a new slate of star-driven commercial films. The fund was announced as EFF principal Randall Emmett comes to Toronto to make deals on films that include the Allen Hughes-directed political corruption drama Broken City, which stars Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe, and Frozen Ground, the fact-based thriller about a serial killer in Alaska which will star Nicolas Cage and John Cusack. Martirosyan and Chase are executive producers on the latter.

Thank you Lula! I like that. A fact-based thriller. I really do want Nic to play the good guy because I'm not sure if I would accept him playing a "total" bad guy. Like a sadistic murderer, rapist, etc.

In movies like Face/Off, Snake Eyes, and Bad Lieutenant, the bad-guy image was more tolerable as it was Nic of course (tehe), and the characters weren't inclusive bad guys. I mean, the cleverness of Face/Off made you think, "well, he's not really bad." tehe!

Nic brings a reality and a kind of empathy to those types of characters, even Yuri, I think. In Face/Off the care he took of his brother seemed to me to make the character more dimentional, rather than just a caricature.

I think if I was an actor I would not want to play a truly horrible character myself, I wonder how it affects you. And imagine if you played Nurse Ratched, for example, would you always be associated with the role? Didn't Nic turn down a role of some kind, Hitler or somebody like that, once?

Thank you for sharing your thoughts Gina and Lady Trueheart, I agree with you both completely! In tehverybearly days of being a Nic fan (20 years and more ago now..) this was the thing that struck me most about how Nic brings his characters to life, it takes real talent to bring ambiguity, and as you both say, empathy, to a character whose actions on the face of it are on the spectrum all that way from badness to 'pure evil'!

From what I have read Gina Nic is going to play the 'good guy' police officer, but who knows! Lady T, tah rings a bell but I cannot remember it vividly! Nic has turned down alot of roles over the years contrary to popuar belief!

Permalink  
 


Deadline reports Vanesa Hudgens has been cast to star alongside  Nicolas Cage and John Cusack in thriller Frozen Ground. The article also contains new plot and production deets:

"In a departure from her High School Musical past, Vanessa Hudgens has been set to star alongside Nicolas Cage and John Cusack in The Frozen Ground, the Emmett/Furla Films thriller that is being sold here in Toronto, with Voltage Pictures handling international sales. The film, which will begin shooting October 17 in Anchorage, Alaska, marks the feature directing debut of Scott Walker, who wrote the script.

Pic is based on true events surrounding Alaska’s most notorious serial predator, Robert Hansen. Cusack is playing Hansen, regarded in the community as a respected family man. In the span of 12 years, he abducted more than 24 women, flew them into the Alaskan wilderness, and hunted and murdered them. Hudgens will play the one teenage victim who escaped. When she returned to tell her story, nobody believed her. Cage will play the Alaskan State Trooper who finds her on the street. Together they work to bring Hansen to justice.

The Frozen Ground is being produced by Randall Emmett and George Furla, along with Amber Entertainment’s Jane Fleming and Mark Ordesky. Envision Entertainment’s Stephan Martirosyan and Remington Chase, and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and executive producers.

Nic mentioned his role in upcoming Frozen Ground at the Trespass Press Conference, kind of answers some of our questions here about the film!

I’m about to do a movie now called Frozen Ground. Scott Walker’s directing for the first time. John Cusack, and it’s a true story of the horrifying and brutal killings of the young ladies in Alaska. They hunt them like animals. So to me this is a challenge because I’m playing a real detective and this man is a real hero and I don’t want to let him down. I have to go meet him and I have to portray him honestly but at the same time give it some pizzazz so that it’s interesting for audiences, but I feel pressure. I feel that this is something that’s more cinema verite, more docudrama. I haven’t done anything like that. Maybe World Trade Center, but it’s been a while.

Ohhhh!!!  Sounds titilating!!!  I wonder if Nic's going to have to alter his appearance in any way - i.e. mustache, lighter or heavier build?  Especially since he's playing a real life character.  Though, does anyone know if the officer Nic played in World Trade, was that thin?  A few of my friends who were extras on World Trade Center, said that Nic was extremely thin during the filming.

Though, I watched an old David Lettermen clip from 2005 (David Lettermen is a late-nite talk show host), and David actually asked Nic about his then thin frame, and Nic said he wanted to get his body to look like a cobra, as he had seen one in Africa while on Safari.  So he was running literally 7 days a week! 

I love it!!!  CLASSIC NIC!!!!!

This is Nic with John McLoughlin, the man he portrayed.

I remember reading about the cobra thing, didn't realize it was on Letterman.

 Lady T, you are so awesome!!  Thank you for this pic!  Nic has definitely gained weight since this pic.  I'm not sure if you would agree but I don't mind his weight in this pic.  He still looks delicious!!  I must say though, I really do like his weight now.  He looks fit and healthy.  Though he has always maintained a masculine and delicious physique.  biggrin

50 cent is not just one the producers on Frozen Ground he also has a starring role!


50 Cent To Play An Alaskan Pimp In The Frozen Ground

published: 2011-09-21 08:10:49 Author: Will LeBlanc

50 Cent To Play An Alaskan Pimp In The Frozen Ground image

By now we should have all come to terms with the fact that rappers inevitably will turn their careers toward acting. Ices Cube and T have managed some pretty strong careers, and Ludacris and Common aren’t doing too bad for themselves either. Their colleague Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has been making a bid for an acting career since his debut in the autobiographical Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in 2005. Though he already has three films in post-production under his Cheetah Vision production company, Cent has added The Frozen Ground to his growing list of upcoming films. 

Frozen Ground is set in 1970s-80s, Alaska where notorious serial killer Robert Hansen murdered 17 prostitutes and/or strippers, and was better known as “Butcher Baker”. Cent will play a pimp who undoubtedly will be losing girls and looking for revenge and money, though the specifics of his role have not been released beyond that he’ll have a “significant role” according to the Anchorage Daily News. Cent’s partner at Cheetah Vision Randall Emmett will be producing the film. 

The rapper will be joining Nicolas Cage who has taken the lead as a State Trooper investigate the Butcher Baker case. The Butcher himself will be played by John Cusack, who rarely gets to step up and play the bad guy. And Vanessa Hudgens, ofHigh School Musical and Sucker Punch quasi-fame, will be baring skin again as one of the would-be victims who managed to escape. 

Emmett says that Cent has moved a bunch of tour dates around to make sure he can be committed to the film, a gesture that proves he actually does care about making his career as an actor work and isn’t just there for a quick dollar. Get used to seeing him on screen, we’re going to get a lot of it in the next couple of years.

It does get more intriguing all the time. Filming starts next month, so we might see some news clips from there, I expect it will get lots of local coverage. I don't know much about Alaska, so look forward to seeing what that scenario will be like too.

Good point flo, 50 Cent has a massive profile too, some mega stars this movie! I enjoyed 50 cent's performance in Get Rich Or Die Trying.

I know very litlte about Alaska too Lady T, I remember a member from cagefactor called Anchorage Babe (Sam) who met Nic there once, atleast i think it was there! so he must have visited before. The landscape is meant to be beautiful and unspoilt, hopefully the scenery there will have a claming effect during the filming which could get quite harrowing considering thw subject matter. Hope Nic takes his moon boots! flowerface

I'm so glad 50 Cent was finally able to make this project happen with Nic.  I was told 50 has been eager to work with Cage as he's a huge fan.  Remember this picture of the two on the set of Nic's film Sorcerer's Apprentice?

I only jsut saw this Gina! love the pic! I remember a rumour from years ago of Nic and 50 cent collaboration tht never came to fruition. i cannot remember what for! glad it has come about fro them though! 50 is playing a pimp in Frozen Ground, my mind immediately turned to Nic's Acid Yellow in Sonny, one of his more way out characters!! chickendance
