Nicolas Cage, Noah Jupe, Souheila Yacoub, and FKA Twigs have signed on to The Carpenter's Son. Egyptian-American filmmaker Lotfy Nathan is the writer and director of the film, which puts a horror spin on a rare cinematic rendering of Jesus' childhood story. Riccardo Maddalosso and Alex Hughes of Spacemaker as well as Julie Viez of Cinenovo are producing it, alongside Cage for Saturn Films. Nathan's screenplay is inspired by the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, an apocryphal text regarding a young Jesus.

According to the official logline, “The Carpenter’s Son tells the dark story of a family hiding out in Roman Egypt. The son, known only as ‘the Boy’, is driven to doubt by another mysterious child and rebels against his guardian, the Carpenter, revealing inherent powers and a fate beyond his comprehension. As he exercises his own power, the Boy and his family become the target of horrors, natural and divine.”

The film stars Cage as the Carpenter, FKA Twigs as the Mother, and Jupe as the Boy. It reunites FKA Twigs and Jupe after Honey Boy. The specifics of the role of Souheila Yacoub, best known for Dune: Part Two, are not yet revealed.

The film is set to go on floors in the third quarter of this year.
