Nic Cage is Scared Straight

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything of Scared Straight, the prison riot thriller that sees a troubled teen trapped in the building when the inmates take over the place.

Rob Cohen had been attached to direct, but now John Carpenter is the man in the director’s chair and he’s close to signing Nicolas Cage to star as a prisoner forced to help the kid.
