Nicolas Cage (Face/Off) returns to the big screen next month in Stolen, reuniting once more with director Simon West (Con Air), whose The Expendables 2 is hitting the big screen this weekend.
Previously titled Medallion, Cage stars opposite the brilliant Malin Åkerman (Watchmen), and now the first official US trailer has debuted over at Yahoo Movies ahead of its release next month.
“Will Montgomery is a master thief who after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry is sent to prison for 8 years. Upon his release he’s ready to leave his criminal past behind and try to rebuild a relationship with his estranged daughter Allison. The FBI and his old cohorts believe that he hid the loot from the last heist eight years ago, $10 million in bonds. To get his hands on it, his old partner Vincent kidnaps Allison and demands the entire $10 million as ransom. Keeping her in the soundproofed trunk of a taxi cab, he’s able to stay mobile amongst the throngs of taxis out during Mardi Gras, making it nearly impossible to find. Montgomery only has one day to get the $10 million ransom, but much to the disbelief of the FBI on his trail and Vincent, Will doesn’t actually have it. Instead, he must trust his instincts and his old partner in crime, the beautiful, sexy and smart Riley, to do one more clever heist to get his daughter back alive before it’s too late.”
Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer) and Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) head up the supporting cast, with West directing from a script by David Guggenheim (Safe House).
With talk of Nicolas Cage joining the cast of The Expendables 3 surfacing this week, Stolen could well be the first of more reunions to come between Cage and West if the director returns to helm the third instalment of Stallone’s action-packed series.
Stolen will be released in the US on 14th September, and though there’s no word yet on a UK release, Lionsgate have the distribution rights, so hopefully we’ll be seeing it soon. For now, here’s the first trailer for your viewing pleasure; I’m always game when it comes to Nicolas Cage.
