"Donnie Darko" Helmer to Direct Nicolas Cage in "Amicus"

"Donnie Darko" Helmer to Direct Nicolas Cage in "Amicus"Submit Comment
Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko) has signed on to direct a true-crime thriller, called "Amicus," that will star Nicolas Cage as Rodney Smolla, one of the most influential First Amendment scholars of the past two decades.

The story is based on Lawrence Horn, a former record producer who is currently serving a life sentence in prison for hiring a hit man to murder his wife, quadriplegic son and a nurse at their suburban home. Horn's son was the victim of medical malpractice and as the result of a subsequent lawsuit, had a trust worth nearly $2 million, which his father stood to inherit in the wake of his death.

Detectives discovered that the hit man, who was sentenced to death in 1995 for the brutal crime, used a how-to book as a guide to execute the murders. The families of the victims went on to file a lawsuit against the book's publisher. They then hired Smolla, a First Amendment attorney to consult on the historic case.

@Pornfly. I'm afraid to watch DD2, in that it'll probably blow.
@Rambo. I agree. I actually liked The Box, even though the story is confusing, it was just weird enough and Kelly's direction was nice.

I demand Richard Kelly remake his other film 'Southland Tales' except this time with Cage playing every single character, based on a rewritten script by Cage as well.

Nicolas Cage WOULD DO ANYTHING to pay off his bills.

I liked the Box aswell. I really wanted to like Southland Tales but that movie was a just lil' blah.

"Anybody seen Donnie Darko sequel?"

Yes. Terrible.

By the way, the latin word amicus means 'friend of the court', in legalese, and the book is titled Hit Man, by Paladin Press.

It can now only be found on the internet.
