Nicolas Cage Is a Cop, John Cusack Is a Killer, and Vanessa Hudgens Is a Hooker in ‘Frozen Ground’ Trailer

Frozen Ground

Spring Breakers really did a number on its central cast. Ever since starring in the Skrillex-addled anxiety attack, the once angelic Selena Gomez has taken to much darker, more adult roles, such as in Getaway and Rudderless. Fellow Disney vet Vanessa Hudgens is following suit, as we can see in the new trailer for her next film, Frozen Ground.

The film stars Hudgens opposite John Cusack (another former teen star who opted for a dark path) and Nicolas Cage (who has always been a denizen of the nightmarish) in a story about the investigation of a serial kidnapper and killer. Cage plays agitated cop to Cusack’s top suspect, with Hudgens — a prostitute — aiming to help in the case as she recovers from a narrowly escaped murder. Check out the trailer above, and catch the film in theaters August 23.
