You can now officially forget the somewhat ill advised Nicolas Cage remake of the cult classic The Wicker Man because the producers of the original film are making a sequel that is totally Cage free. The new film is a thematic sequel to the first one and is being done by the same creative team of director Robin Hardy and star Christopher Lee. Here's what you're going to get:
Young Christians Beth and Steve, a gospel singer and her cowboy boyfriend, leave Texas to preach door-to-door in Scotland. When, after initial abuse, they are welcomed with joy and elation to Tressock, the border fiefdom of Sir Lachlan Morrison, they assume their hosts simply want to hear more about Jesus. How innocent and wrong they are.
Here's the Web site for the movie, and here's the trailer: (via io9)
