Twilight’s Billy Burke to star with Nicolas Cage in Drive Angry
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Apparently, having anything to do with the Twilight films means you’re guaranteed at least one follow-up movie. What you do with that is up to you, but you get one guaranteed free pass. Billy Burke (who plays Bella’s father) is no exception and he’s using his pass to star in the indie film DRIVE ANGRY. The film stars Nicolas Cage as a mysterious man racing across the desert to find the man that killed his daughter. William Fichtner and Amber Heard also star in the film directed and written by Todd Farmer.
More power to the Twilight alum. It’s rare that a film comes along that inspires so much success and given that the first one was such a “small” movie, many actors that wouldn’t otherwise get a shot are now getting roles they wouldn’t dream of. The real question is; how many of these Twilight alum will be around in five years?
