Nicolas Cage in "The Frozen Ground"2012 Voltage Pictures
The biggest news on this front came in July, 2011, when Producer Randall Emmett (Wonderland, Amityville Horror) announced plans to shoot a film about Robert Hansen, the subject of the true-crime work Butcher, Baker. The film based on Hansen's crimes, "Frozen Ground," stars Nicolas Cage and John Cusack.
Casting against type, Cage plays the sensitive cop featured in "Butcher, Baker" -- based on Alaska State Trooper Sgt. Glenn Flothe. Cusack plays the role of the killer, Robert Hansen -- again, against type. As you can imagine, this has spurred considerable interest in "Butcher, Baker."
