FilmRise Acquires The Nicholas Cage Vehicle, “Vengeance: A Love Story”


June 23, 2017 — FilmRise has announced the acquisition of the Nicolas Cage star vehicle Vengeance: A Love Story, based on the 2003 Joyce Carol Oates novel Rape: A Love Story.

The screenplay for the movie was written by John Mankiewicz.

Teena (Anna Hutchison) is brutally raped on her way home on the Fourth of July. Her 12-year old daughter, Bethie (Talitha Bateman) has witnessed the entire thing, but when a high-priced lawyer, Jay Kirkpatrick (Don Johnson) gets ahold of the evidence, he makes the entire incident seem like a questionable event. The reality of the situation is distorted and confused.

At this point, John Dromoor (Cage) becomes involved and determines to exact vigilante justice on the behalf of the two women.

Cage and Michael Mendelsohn produced the film. It will have a theatrical release in the fall of 2017.
