EXCLUSIVE: Oscar winners Nicolas Cage and Faye Dunaway have signed on to star in Inconceivable, with Nicky Whelan co-starring in the Jonathan Baker-directed thriller. Chloe King wrote the script, and Randall Emmett and George Furla of Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films are producing with Baker and Daniel Herther of Baker Entertainment. Wayne Marc Godfrey of the Fyzz Facility and Arnaud Lannic and Barry Brooker are exec producing.
The picture shoots next month, and it’s part of the Emmett/Furla/Oasis distribution arrangement with Lionsgate Premiere. LP will release domestically, and Highland Film Group will sell internationally. This marks the fifth film that Emmett/Furla and Cage have made together, and E/F/O’s 15th with Lionsgate.
When Katie (Whelan) moves to town with her young daughter in order to start a new life after enduring abuse in her past, she quickly befriends another mother, Angela, and her husband Brian (Cage). Angela notices odd behavior from Katie and begins to question whether Katie’s intentions are as innocent as she makes them out to be, or if something dark is lurking beneath the surface.
Emmett/Furla is in postproduction on Martin Scorsese’s Silence, and production just wrapped on the Kevin Connolly-directed Gotti, with John Travolta playing the Teflon Don John Gotti. The Bruce Willis starrer First Kill is in production with director Steven C. Miller.
