As Robin Hardy plans his anticipated pseudo-sequel to THE WICKER MAN called THE RIDING OF THE LADDIE, the Hollywood remake is finally getting some press.
The new WICKER MAN is being helmed by Neil LaBute (IN THE COMPANY OF MEN, NURSE BETTY) and stars Nicholas Cage. Now LaBute has talked to Cindy Pearlman of the about his take on the project. To say it differs from the original is an understatement.
For one thing, he's moving the story from the strange English island of pagans to America. Nicholas Cage plays the part originated by Edward Woodward. Instead of Christopher Lee's pagans, Cage finds a matriarchal society of women descended from the pilgrims. The women will be aged 10-50. None of the women have been cast, but LaBute throws around the names of Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie in the article.
