Lords of War (D: Niccol) S: Cage, Skarsgard

Cannes: Nicolas Cage, Bill Skarsgård Nab Leads in Sequel ‘Lords of War’

Nicolas Cage and Bill Skarsgård are set to star in Lords of War, the sequel to Lord of War that reunites CODA producer Vendome Pictures with director Andrew Niccol.

Niccol will write and direct the sequel to his 2005 crime thriller Lord of War, with Cage reprising his role as arms dealer Yuri Orlov, and Skarsgård on board to play his son. In Lords of War, Orlov discovers he has a son, Anton, who is trying to top his father’s wrongs rather than stop them as he launches a mercenary army to fight America’s Middle East conflicts.

The sequel will shoot in fall 2023, with FilmNation Entertainment representing the international sales rights starting at the Cannes Film Festival. CAA Media Finance will handle the domestic rights.

Cool. Didn't expect a sequel to this.

Niccol will write and direct the sequel to his 2005 crime thriller Lord of War,
The sequel will shoot in fall 2023​​​​​​​
Either one of those two statements are incorrect, or someone is being VERY optimistic about the end of the Writer's Strike.

It's probably already written.

Not the sequel to a Nicolas Cage movie I was expecting, but Lord of War is one of his best. His acting style was perfect for the part and I actually see how Bill Skarsgard plays his son. I really hope Nicolas Cage is getting back into better movies. He hardly had bad movies like Willis or Travolta, but he's still made trash, with a pearl from time to time. Pig and Massive Talent were a step in the right direction. The Old Way wasn't good but, no trash either, Renfield I haven't watched yet, but the trailer looked fun.

At first I was scared this was bumping a old thread and maybe only 4 people saw the original.

It was good though wonder how they could continue the storyline since it seemed like it ended with a satisfying conclusion.

Re: Lords of War (D: Niccol) S: Cage, Skarsgard

EXCLUSIVE: Laura Harrier (White Men Can’t Jump) has been tapped for a major role opposite Bill Skarsgård and Nicolas Cage in Lords of War, the sequel to 2005 crime thriller Lord of War, which Andrew Niccol (Anon) wrote and is directing for Vendôme Pictures (CODA), sources tell Deadline.

Lords of War picks up the story of Yuri Orlov (Cage), the world’s most notorious gunrunner, watching as he discovers he has a son, Anton (Skarsgård), who isn’t trying to right his father’s wrongs — he’s trying to top them. Not only selling guns but the “trigger pullers” too, Anton is amassing a mercenary army to fight America’s Middle East conflicts. This is the story of Yuri and Anton’s bitter rivalry — even at odds over the same woman. Who will prevail when father and son go to war?

Specifics as to Harrier’s part are under wraps.

Philippe Rousselet and Fabrice Gianfermi have returned to produce the sequel under their Vendôme Pictures banner, alongside Cage for Saturn Films. Skarsgård serves as exec producer, with FilmNation Entertainment repping international sales, and CAA Media Finance handling domestic.

Breaking out with her turn as Liz, the love interest of Peter Parker (Tom Holland), in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Harrier has since then gone on to appear in Spike Lee’s Academy Award winner BlacKkKlansman, Theodore Melfi’s TIFF-premiering Netflix dramedy The Starling starring Melissa McCarthy, and 20th/Hulu’s reboot of classic comedy White Men Can’t Jump.
