The Hollywood Reporter has the first official look at Nicolas Cage in the upcoming survival action-thriller Arcadian, showcasing Cage and two others going for a wild ride.

The film, which was formerly known as Sand and Stones, stars Cage alongside Jaeden Martell (It, Knives Out), Maxwell Jenkins (Lost in Space), and Sadie Soverall (Fate: The Winx Saga). The photograph shows Cage, Martin, and Jenkins all in an off-road vehicle, with Martin driving and Cage and Jenkins staring off into the distance.

Sand and Stones is directed by Ben Brewer from a screenplay written by Mike Nilon. The film will feature Cage playing Paul, the father of twin teenage sons Joseph and Thomas, played by Martell and Jenkins respectively. Set in a post-apocalyptic and sparsely populated world, the story follows Paul and his sons, “who have managed to claw out an existence, yet live in constant fear. Until, confronted by imminent danger, they must execute a desperate plan to survive.”

The film is produced by Highland Film Group, with Nilon, Cage, David Wulf, Arianne Fraser, Delphine Perrier, and Braxton Pope serving as producers. It is being executive produced by Slava Vladimirov, Jared Underwood, and Andrew Robinson.
