Elijah Wood is teaming up with Nicolas Cage to star in The Trust, a cop thriller being directed by Alex Brewer. Cage and Wood will play two crooked cops who discover a hidden safe while working in the evidence unit of the police department. When they try to abscond with the contents, they are faced with even more corruption that leaves them fighting for their lives and questioning their every move.
Jack Huston was originally earmarked for the role Wood is taking. Benjamin Brewer and Adam Hirsch co-wrote the script. Production just began in Las Vegas. Braxton Pope and Molly Hassell are producing. Wood recently wrapped shooting The Last Witch Hunter, a Vin Diesel action movie directed by Breck Eisner. Cooties, Wood’s horror comedy from Sundance 2014, is due to be released later this year.
