Nicolas Cage will reportedly portray infamous Chicago ganglord Al Capone in The Untouchables: Capone Rising, a prequel to the 1987 crime classic directed by Brian De Palma. Robert De Niro played Capone in the earlier film.
The pic is, like the original, a work of historical fiction mixing real figures with fictional characters. The real life battle between Treasury agent Elliot Ness and mobster Capone inspired the classic TV series starring Robert Stack.
The project will reunite Cage with De Palma, who directed the Oscar winner in Snake Eyes. De Palma has been attached to Capone Rising since 2005. Filming is said to begin in October.
