Nicholas Cage is producing and appearing in “Next”, yet another Philip K. Dick adaptation, this time from the short story “The Golden Man”. The story is about the government hunting down and extinguishing mutants, because of the threat they generally pose to normal people, and how they come across a silent golden man who sees the future as an extension of the present. Like most of these adaptations, they’re going to feck it up, but the question is how much? Well, they’re making the silent, super-evolved golden beast (a metaphor for the aryan ideal, both Indian and facist) into a speaking Nicholas Cage, he of the Roger Moore eyebrows. Huzzah!
