Nicolas Cage, Bill Skarsgård Playing Father and Son Arms Dealers in ‘Lord of War’ Sequel for Andrew Niccol

May 08, 2023

Nicolas Cage and Bill Skarsgård are set to star in Lords of War, the sequel to Lord of War that reunites CODA producer Vendome Pictures with director Andrew Niccol.

Niccol will write and direct the sequel to his 2005 crime thriller Lord of War, with Cage reprising his role as arms dealer Yuri Orlov, and Skarsgård on board to play his son. In Lords of War, Orlov discovers he has a son, Anton, who is trying to top his father’s wrongs rather than stop them as he launches a mercenary army to fight America’s Middle East conflicts.

The sequel will shoot in fall 2023, with FilmNation Entertainment representing the international sales rights starting at the Cannes Film Festival. CAA Media Finance will handle the domestic rights.

Philippe Rousselet and Fabrice Gianfermi, who produced the original, are returning in the same role for Lords of War under their Vendôme Pictures banner, with Cage also producing via his Saturn Films banner. Skarsgård is executive producing.
