Season of the Witch---Nicolas Cage / Ron Perlman






Spoiler:
Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Stephen Campbell, Robert Sheehan, Claire Foy, Ulrich Thomsen, Stephen Graham and Christopher Lee in this period tale, directed by Dominic Sena. The script - which has been circulating for a few years now - is said to be solid and we're digging on what we see!
In the supernatural thriller Season of the Witch, Nicolas Cage stars as a 14th century Crusader who returns with his comrade (Ron Perlman) to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence.

A priest (Stephen Campbell Moore), a grieving knight (Ulrich Thomsen), an itinerant swindler (Stephen Graham) and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight (Robert Sheehan) join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl.

When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardizes the knight's pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.


Christopher Lee too. Looks promising.

Relieved to see that this is not a Halloween III remake - as Nic Cage is no Tom Atkins...

Premise sounds interesting.

Actually, I was hoping it WAS a remake of Halloween III.

Yeah, me too. Christopher Lee would be good as Conal Cochran.

Hmm. This is kind of different for Cage. I can't recall him doing any period pieces (not counting Peggy Sue got Married).

I expect this to be his typical dreck.
