Cage is a serial slayer in the movie currently shooting in Vancouver.

Variety reports that Maika Monroe of WATCHER and IT FOLLOWS has come aboard LONGLEGS, the new chiller from writer/director Osgood Perkins (THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER, GRETEL & HANSEL). Cage is also a producer on the project through his Saturn Films; according to the trade, “In LONGLEGS, FBI Agent Lee Harker (Monroe) is a gifted new recruit assigned to the unsolved case of an elusive serial killer (Cage). As the case takes complex turns, unearthing evidence of the occult, Harker discovers a personal connection to the merciless killer and must race against time to stop him before he claims the lives of another innocent family.”

C2 Motion Picture Group is producing and fully financing the movie, with Black Bear International beginning international sales this month at Berlin’s European Film Market.
