Jessica Biel Joins Nicolas Cage's "Next" Project

Jessica Biel will co-star with Nicolas Cage and Julianne Moore in the sci-fi thriller "Next," which, like just about every sci-fi flick these days, is based on a short story by the late great author Philip K. Dick.

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "Jessica Biel has signed on to co-star in Lee Tamahori's sci-fi thriller "Next" for Revolution Studios. Nicolas Cage and Julianne Moore are toplining the film, which is based on Philip K. Dick's short story "The Golden Man." Penned by Gary Goldman, the story centers on a man (Cage) with the unique ability to see future events and affect their outcome. Pursued by the FBI, which is seeking to use his abilities to prevent a global terrorist attack, he ultimately is faced with the choice of saving himself or the world. Biel will play Liz, the love interest of Cage's character, whom he must attempt to save from terrorists. Cage, Todd Garner, Norm Golightly, Graham King and Arne Schmidt are producing. Derek Dauchy is overseeing for Revolution, which has set a late March start date for the film. Biel, whose credits include "London," "Blade: Trinity" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," next appears in Neil Burger's "The Illusionist.""

This may have been a short story, but what a great short story!!! Cage and Biel are good choices, but having Lee Tamahori directing doesn't help it's prospects.

I have no hope for this with Tamahari's films getting progressively worse with each release. XXX: State of the Union, his last film, is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Agreed. Although Screen writer Gary Goldman has a nice pedigree

Minority Report 92%

Total Recall 80%

Big Trouble in Little China 83%

Perhaps if the story is smart enough then it will cancel out the fact that they have a crap director (once were warriors excluded)

I was already really looking forward to this and the addition of Biel just kicks ass. As for Tamahori I've liked all of his films that I've seen cept for XXX: State of the Union.
