A Taste of What's "Next" for Nicolas Cage

by | August 31, 2006 | Comments

Any time I hear the phrase "movie based on a Philip K. Dick story," I know I have to do a little more research. The next PKD adaptation is Lee Tamahori‘s "Next," which stars Nicolas Cage as a man who can see the future and Jessica Biel as a woman who is really, really sexy.

From an on-set report by Heather Newgen at ComingSoon.net: "The film is based on Phillip K. Dick’s short story "The Golden Man." Cage plays Chris Johnson, who has the unique ability to see future events and affect their outcome. The FBI learns of his abilities and they want to utilize his power to help prevent a global terrorist threat – European terrorists have stolen a Russian bomb and have threatened to blow up the ports of the city.

Johnson is reluctant to help the FBI for reasons that couldn’t be revealed to us or the plot would be given away. However, we were told that after the terrorists have captured Johnson’s girlfriend Liz (Biel), he is forced to work with the FBI to help get her back. Johnson is ultimately faced with the daunting choice of saving the world or the woman he loves."

  1. "Blade Runner" (1982)
  2. "Total Recall" (1990)
