A team of filmmakers hope to raise $85,000 on Kickstarter to create a movie adaptation of Brian Keene’s sci-fi/horror thriller, The Cage. The funds will be used to cover production costs.
The filmmakers “worked very closely” with the novelist, and promised that his loyal readers “not be disappointed.” We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:
What we see in The Cage is the potential to unleash a film on unsuspecting audiences who have grown accustomed to run of the mill CGI filled Hollywood clones.The Cage is something different, something that will shock and scare you and leave you wanting more. A movie that fans will want to revisit again. Talk about. Fight over. Wonder when they’re going to get a playset based on the film. A movie that, due to the nature of it’s setting, and our fantastic Cast/Crew coming aboard for less money and lots of passion, is geared for the lower budget, without losing quality.
