Hollywood superstar Nicolas Cage has reportedly signed on to star in a new Bollywood gangster movie.

The Oscar winner will headline Broken Horses, directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and a remake of Chopra’s 1989 movie Parinda – reports the Hindustan Times.

A source tells the newspaper, “Vidhu is currently in Los Angeles, working on for Broken Horses. Cage has been confirmed for one of the leading roles just a few days ago.”

The actor won’t need to pick up any new languages for the role – or even travel very far – Chopra recently revealed his latest project will be shot in the U.S. and in English. He said, “In September, I will start shooting Broken Horses in the U.S. It will be an English film and will be for the world audience.

“I have done Hindi films, now I am doing English and after this I may do a Hindi film again.”
