We've called to Nicolas Cage many times here on Cinema Blend to dig deep and use more of his films to exercise his true wild side. Apparently, however, he may have taken that advice a bit more literally than expected.

Deadline has learned that Cage, Juno Temple and Johnny Knoxville have all signed on for parts in Wild Side, the new film from writer/director Jesse Baget (Stefania Moscato is credited as a co-writer). Temple will star as Lila Belle Clyde, a former beauty queen on the run and Cage will play the villain, a man named Odel who the source calls a "self-described wolf." The site doesn't say who Knoxville will be playing. The story follows Lila as she somehow finds herself in possession of Odel's diamonds, which he stole from a murder scene. Her plan is to escape to New Orleans (this is a southern-fried tale), but in order to get there she must get away from the cops, reporters and, of course, Odel.

Baget is a relative newcomer who recently wrapped production on his newest feature, Breathless. That film stars Gina Gershon, Kelli Giddish, Ray Liotta and Val Kilmer. He is currently in production on a small thriller called Mississippi Wild, which will star Mike Gassaway.

The last time Nicolas Cage was around Louisiana the result was Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, which was one of my favorite movies in 2009. If this movie gets anywhere close to finding that level of insanity then we should be in for a treat.
