Nicolas Cage’s China-set “Outcast” tipped for sequel

PanARMENIAN.Net - Period action film “Outcast” starring Nicolas Cage, is being tipped for sequel treatments, even though the first picture is some five months from release, according to Variety.

“Resident Evil” producer Jeremy Bolt announced plans for a sequel in Beijing on Thursday, April 17 ahead of a high profile seminar on Chinese-international co-production.

“Outcast,” a tale of two 12th century European crusaders who voyage to China, where they find redemption, is set up as a Chinese-French-Canadian joint venture. China’s Yunnan Film Group is financier and co-producer. U.S.-Australian sales and finance outfit Arclight Films is handling international sales.

“We are planning a worldwide release, including the U.S. and China, in September and October this year,” said Bolt.

“’Outcast’ has been acclaimed by buyers, and we are determined to make a sequel,” Bolt said at a public ceremony for the signing of an “Outcast 2” memorandum of understanding.
