Fans of Neil LaBute may be pleased to learn that filmmaker Mike Figgis will be breaking his eight year absence from the big screen with Seconds of Pleasure, an adaptation of LaBute’s book of short stories which the playwright/director has penned for the long AWOL British director.

What’s more, the Leaving Las Vegas helmer has assembled an interesting line up, with the likes of Matt Dillon, Julia Stiles, Brendan Fraser, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Hendricks signing up for the tale of six different couples whose separate stories are intertwined in one drama.

It’s a welcome return for the director, and it’s interesting to note that both Figgis and Labute have a previous connection of sorts, as in the past, they’ve managed to bring out the very best and very worse of actor Nicolas Cage (in the aforementioned Oscar-winning tale of an alcoholic’s descent in that titular US city and the remake of The Wicker Man, respectively).
