Nicolas Cage will star in a movie entitled Wally’s Wonderland. Despite the title, however, it isn’t set to be any sort of kiddy flick.
It’s to be a horror piece, according to Deadline, where Cage will play a janitor who’s forced to spend the night in an amusement park wherein the animatronic characters come alive. His cleaner-upperer personage will need to fight each of them off in hopes of seeing another day.
So, basically it sounds like the video game Five Nights at Freddy’s, just set in a different environment.
Kevin Lewis is set to direct. He, uh, previously gave us both Malibu Sping Break and the Sean Young-starring The Drop.
We do love Lewis’s vision in this quote about Wally’s Wonderland: “For me there was always one actor and one actor only who could make this movie work, and that actor is Nic Cage. I’m thrilled to be working with him and can’t wait to see him go up against Wally and his gang of psychopathic misfits. I see this movie as Pale Rider vs Killer Klowns from Outer Space.”
Production is set to get going in January, 2020.
