Nicholas Cage is trying to attract high caliber actress for his new thriller movie. Malin Akerman, of Watchmen fame, has just entered talks for Medallion. Directed by Simon West, it’ll start shooting in a few weeks down in New Orleans with or without her.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Medallion follows Cage as he hastily and recklessly searches for his missing daughter.
She’s been abducted and left in the back of a cab. Cage will play a former thief that knows his way around. Akerman should play another thief, supposedly a bankrobber.
New writer David Guggenheim penned the script that is typically a Cage movie.
