‘Lords of War,’ the follow-up to the Nicolas Cage-starring film ‘Lord of War,’ will start filming in September. The film’s main setting is Los Angeles, California, and it centres around Nicolas Cage’s character Yuri Orlov learning that he has a son named Anton. Orlov understands that his son is “assembling a mercenary army to fight America’s Middle East conflicts,” not “trying to right his father’s wrongs,” but rather “top them.” This starts a generational conflict that divides father and son against one another. However, because of the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, the production could be delayed.
The sequel is also being directed by Andrew Niccol, who wrote and directed the original movie in 2005. The screenplay was also written by the director. Niccol created Peter Weir’s renowned picture “The Truman Show” after making his feature film debut with the Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman movie “Gattaca.” ‘In Time,’ ‘The Host,’ ‘The Good Kill,’ etc. are some of his other credits. The story for Steven Spielberg’s “The Terminal” was likewise written by Niccol. The 2018 science fiction picture “Anon” was his most recent movie to be released.
The possibilities with these characters are endless. Only the dead have witnessed the end of battle, as said by Plato. Niccol said in a statement, “I’m looking forward to spending more time with the lovely devil that is Yuri Orlov and now his illegitimate son, who turns out to not be legitimate in any manner.
In the follow-up, Cage returns as Yuri Orlov, the main character. The movie is only one of the actor’s many planned projects. On July 28, 2023, Yuval Adler’s “Sympathy for the Devil,” in which he plays “The Passenger,” will be released. Additionally, he finished filming Tim Brown’s upcoming movie “The Retirement Plan,” which will be released in August 2023. In “Dream Scenario,” Cage will appear with Michael Cera and Julianne Nicholson. Recent roles for the actor include Rob in “Pig,” Colton Briggs in “The Old Way,” Miller in “Butcher’s Crossing,” Dracula in “Renfield,” a fictionalised version of himself in “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent,” etc.
As Anton, Orlov’s son, Bill Skarsgrd joined the cast of the movie. For his roles as Pennywise in the films “It” and “It: Chapter Two,” Skarsgrd is most known. Additionally, he performs the roles of Marquis in “John Wick: Chapter 4,” Sven Stolpe in “Burn All My Letters,” Keith in “Barbarian,” Clark Olofsson in “Clark,” Kro in “Eternals,” etc. The actor is also the movie’s executive producer.
The sequel is also being produced by Philippe Rousselet and Fabrice Gianfermi under Vendôme Pictures. Rousselet stated in a statement that there is “no shortage of ammunition in the possibilities of stories we can tell in the ‘Lord of War’ world, and we are very excited to tell yet another one that follows Yuri and Anton’s perilous journey.” Cage also works as a producer for Saturn Films, his business.
