Scott Walker’s directorial debut will be worked from his own script for The Frozen Ground, the true story of a seemingly respectable family man, Robert Hansen, who turns out to be a serial killer. Over the course of more than a decade, Hansen kidnapped, then hunted and killed more than two dozen women in the hostile wilds of Alaska.

John Cusack will play Hansen, in what seems like a beautiful piece of casting. Nicolas Cage will be the State Trooper who finds Hudgens, who is one of the few of the intended victims who has managed to escape. Perhaps inevitably, Hudgens’ character struggles to make people believe her seemingly improbable story. Curtis “Fiddy Cent” Jackson is on board as an executive producer and has also been cast in a role as a 1980’s-era pimp.

I’m inclined to say that I’d watch Cusack in pretty much anything, so the idea of seeing him as a menacing, presumably psychopathic serial killer fills me with anticipation. One to keep an eye on.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
