LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Only days after signing to star in the 3D action pic “Drive Angry,” Nicolas Cage is satiating his appetite with “The Hungry Rabbit Jumps,” a thriller to be directed by Roger Donaldson.

The script centers on a man whose wife is the victim of a brutal crime. He then becomes entangled with an underground vigilante organization. Shooting is scheduled to begin in January in New Orleans. Tobey Maguire will serve as a producer.

Cage seems to be making Louisiana his new home. He filmed “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” there and will segue from “Rabbit” to “Drive Angry,” which shoots in April.

Donaldson last directed the heist thriller “The Bank Job.”
