As mentioned earlier in the week right here on ManlyMovie, Nicolas Cage is headed back to the WW2 genre with ‘USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage’ which will be directed by Mario Van Peebles and produced by Hannibal Classics. Below is the official poster for the movie.
Cam Cannon penned the script and Cage will take on the role of Capt. Charles Butler McVay whose ship was torpedoed in the South Pacific in July 1945 after delivering parts for the first atomic bombs. Cage then must summon his inner man and fend off mother nature’s shit, like exposure and sharks. Cage versus sharks in a DTV production, one marvels at the trolling forecast for this one.
Filming is set for June 10th 2015, with a view to releasing it Memorial Day 2016.
