Nicolas Cage’s wildest film yet – cult director Sion Sono on Sundance debutant Prisoners of the Ghostland: ‘We made it as an action movie’

  • In Prisoners of the Ghostland, Cage plays Hero, a bank robber on a Max Max-style mission with bombs strapped to his testicles in case he makes a wrong move
  • The actor has called it the wildest film he has made, and Sono says if it is wilder than Wild at Heart, a Cage film he loves, then he is ‘really honoured’
