John Cusack and Nicolas Cage are said to be in negotiations for the lead roles in an upcoming thriller The Frozen Ground, which is based on true events about the most notorious hunter and killer Robert Hansen. Cusack is considered to play Alaskan sadistic slaughter, while Cage is eyed to star as a state trooper.
Robert Hansen is a respected family man, who has been abducting more than 24 women for over 12 years and throwing them into the Alaskan wilderness only to be released before he hunted and slaughtered them. Meanwhile, an Alaskan State Trooper finds Hansen's surviving victim on the streets and teams up with her to bring the murderer to justice.
The Frozen Ground will be the debut directorial venture of Scott Walker, who has written the script. The movie is being produced by Randall Emmett, George Furla, Mark Ordesky and Jane Fleming. This movie is scheduled to start the production this fall in Anchorage, Alaska.
