It wouldn’t be a calendar year without a handful of low-tier Nicolas Cage thrillers and from Seeking Justice to Stolen, our appetite is nearly full. But due to his constant work schedule, it means we’re getting more than we bargained for and the first look at the latest has come in today. Scott Walker‘s Frozen Ground features the true-life story of an Alaska State Trooper (Cage) who teams with a young stripper (Vanessa Hudgens) to take down serial killer Robert Hansen (John Cusack).
While Cusack is coming off a familiar villain role, as seen in a similar role in this year’s The Paperboy, the once Disney starlet Hudgens is certainly heading down a very different career path, one on the stripping stage. Along with Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers, the actress is certainly making a strong attempt to distance herself from what made her famous. Unfortunately the whole thing looks pretty terrible, even though this is a rough cut of a trailer (or at least I hope so). Check it out below from ONTD, also featuring Breaking Bad‘s Dean Norris and 50 Cent.
Lionsgate will release Frozen Ground later this year.

His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
