“Mandy” Filmmaker Sets Sci-Fi “Nekrokosm”
Four years since “Mandy” kick started a new phase in the career of Nicolas Cage, filmmaker Panos Cosmatos is returning with his next feature.
Titled “Nekrokosm,” the science fiction fantasy has Maegan Houang (“Counterpart,” “Shogun”) writing the script from a story by her and Cosmatos. Cosmatos will direct.
Dubbed a ‘phantasmagorical fantasy nightmare,’ the story unfolds deep within a strange galaxy where two lovers are torn apart as they try to survive a malevolent invasion.
In addition, Cosmatos will reunite with producer XYZ Films for the project which has been set up at A24 who will finance and handle worldwide releasing. Nate Bolotin will produce.
