Nic Cage Goes Grizzly Adams In First Still From ‘Joe’

We have the first look at David Gordon Green’s gritty, crime-drama, JOE, starring Nicolas Cage. The film has a screenplay by Gary Hawkins and is based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Larry Brown.

Perhaps best known for his wacky comedies PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, THE SITTER and YOUR HIGHNESS, Green does have experience in slow-burning personal dramas with the impressive ALL THE REAL GIRLS, UNDERTOW and SNOW ANGELS.

The official synopsis for JOE goes as follows:

In the dirty unruly world of small-town Texas, ex-convict Joe Ransom (Cage) has tried to put his dark past behind him and to live a simple life. He works for a lumber company by day, drinks by night. But when 15-year-old Gary (Tye Sheridan) – a kid trying to support his family – comes to town, desperate for work, Joe has found a way to atone for his sins – to finally be someone’s hero. As Joe tries to protect Gary, the pair will take the twisting road to redemption in the hope for a better life in this tough, hard-hitting but incredibly moving story.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
