EXCLUSIVE: With filming currently under way in Montana on the western Butcher’s Crossing, Nicolas Cage looks to be giving audiences another fun character to add to his long list of iconic roles as the first image of the part has been released. Cage plays the buffalo hunter, Miller, in the film, which is being directed by Gabe Polsky.
The story is about a young Harvard dropout seeks his destiny out West by tying his fate to a team of buffalo hunters led by Miller (Cage). Together, they embark on a harrowing journey risking life and sanity. The title refers to the small Kansas town where the two intersect in the novel’s story, which was set in the 1870s.
If the image is anything close to how the film turns out, audiences can expect another wild ride on this next Cage project.
