Cage abruptly pulled out of the film last week — just two weeks before production was scheduled to start in Louisiana — after being locked into a $7 million deal, reports Deadline. The actor was originally cast to play Kidman's husband in the film, which revolves around a couple kidnapped by thieves. Cage later switched roles to play the leader of the kidnappers before dropping out, according to Deadline.
Deadline is now reporting that Cage will return to the Joel Schumacher-directed project in the husband role.
Calls and emails to Millennium Films and Cage's rep was not immediately returned.
