He's Determined To Destroy Whatever Little Bit Of A Career He Has Left. He Is

Cage in Season of the Witch is even worse, apparently, than Cage in a remake of the Wicker Man.

When two knights (Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman) return from the Crusades, they find their homeland ravaged by the Black Plague. The church blames the plague on sorcery, and orders the knights to escort an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey , where monks will perform a ritual that they hope will put an end to the pestilence

I think that I saw this movie. It was by Ingmar Bergman. It begins with the immortal line: Jag var Doden. I'm not sure that it needed to be remade.

Crap. There are literally thousands of wonderful sword and sorcery/witchy detective/haunted mystery etc. books and series out in the markeplace -- with LOTS of loyal (sometimes even rabid LOL!) followers who would pay -- and pay -- to see them made into movies! Of course -- I'm surprised that Witches or Pagans or even Fairies haven't been blamed for creating/causing/bringing in the swine flu.
