Nic & Weston's "Voodoo Child"

Weston & Nicolas Cage's Voodoo Child: Limited Edition Hardcover
Item# VCTH001
Product Description

Big, bold new series! In 1860, the plantation of Mason Moore -- a known
Unionist sympathizer -- is burned to the ground by secessionists. In
the battle, Moore's illegitimate son is killed, but as he gasps his
last breaths, a voodoo bokor places a spell upon the dying boy. Flash
forward to 2005: four months after the worst natural disaster in its
history, New Orleans is gripped by fear as young girls start to
disappear from its streets while a brutal gang war rages. When
Detective Robert Julien starts to investigate, he finds that there's
something else out in the shadows: something that's neither dead nor
alive. The Enigma. But is it a possible ally or the darkest nightmare
of all?

Science-fiction drama Knowing, an "apocalyptic kind of story"

American actor Nicholas Cage filming 13-week, $50 million flick down under

read more | digg story reporter, Daniel Ziffer, filed a kinda-sorta profile piece on Nicholas Cage April 7, 2008 and I have pulled some of the quotes.

Describing a scene, Ziffer wrote, "a flustered Cage enters an exhibition about 2 a.m. in the Melbourne Museum. He sidles up to co-star Rose Byrne and introduces
himself. It's awkward. He thrusts his hand at her, too fast. But she accepts, smiles, and responds with her name. The meeting is important. He needs her to
help save the world," Ziffer wrote.
Nick said...
"It's subject matter that definitely makes one think about what one
would do in the face of these incredible circumstances, " Cage said
yesterday. "Where you go to find comfort, to survive it."

"It's important to be cautious, but it's also important to be
positive," he said, weighing each word before speaking. "It would be
uncomfortable to advocate doomsday, or the possibility of doomsday.
It would be more preferable to look at all the options and find
solutions to the various concerns, as opposed to writing it off as a
done deal."

"Cage smiled while describing an upcoming holiday he will take with his young family, who are living here during the 13-week shoot. With them, he said, he could go longer without feeling the desire to work," Ziffer wrote.

"It's getting better," (Cage) said. "The length of time is longer now, before the need to dive in is right there."
