This news story is for anyone who thought these two recent flops were enough to destroy Nic Cage’s bankability. Not only is the movie star still getting work, he’s attracting prime talent to roll alongside him. 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. Solid money bets on with 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. Lucky for her, her dad’s a former thief that knows his way around the underworld. Soon, Akerman’s character, another bankrobber, is on board for the frenzied search.

This sounds like a Nic Cage movie. With any luck, it’ll be his first effort in a long time that’s worthy of all that entails. We’ll see. New writer David Guggenheim penned the script. That would normally make me nervous, except another one of his efforts, Safe House, has been purchased as well. Let’s hope there’s some talent here. Cage may be able to survive a few more disasters, but eventually, he’s going to need to turn around a hit that’s not National Treasure.
