MTV reports that Nicolas Cage will reteam with Snake Eyes director Brian DePalma for The Untouchables: Capone Rising, playing a younger version of the character made famous by Robert DeNiro.
Principal photography on the high-profile flick will begin in October, some 21 years after its predecessor was filmed. No word yet on whether the temporary Capone Rising title will be scrapped, following the chilly response audiences gave to February’s Hannibal Rising prequel.

Based on the classic 50′s/60′s TV drama, The Untouchables was a box-office and critical smash that announced Kevin Costner as a leading man, re-launched the career of Connery, and solidified DeNiro’s on-screen tough-guy persona.

I’m a pretty big Nicolas Cage fan but i don’t think that is a good idea.
