Nicolas Cage in Chopra's next!


By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, Aug. 30 -- It's learnt that Vidhu Vinod Chopra has finalised Nicolas Cage for his film Broken Horses. The movie will go on the floors early next year.

"Vidhu is currently in Los Angeles, working on for Broken Horses. Even in Mumbai, he was in touch with his Hollywood contacts for the cast and crew. Cage has been confirmed for one of the leading roles just a few days ago," says our source.

Reportedly, Mickey Rourke has also been approached for an important role in the gangster film that Chopra is producing in association with Reliance Big Pictures. Apparently, Broken Horses is inspired by the filmmaker's Parinda, starring Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit.

"Broken Horses keeps the soul of Parinda intact. But it explores the same genre in a diverse setup," says our source.

While Chopra couldn't be contacted, Nitin Desai, who's the production designer of the movie, says, "All I can say is that I'm working on Broken Horses. Vinod is the best person to talk about anything related to the film."
