Nicolas Cage is back in action this fall, starring in Simon West's thriller Stolen, which arrives in theaters next month. The trailer for the film gives us a look at what Cage's character Will Montgomery is up against as he's tasked with trying to rescue his daughter from the clutches of his old partner.

As you'll see in the trailer below, Cage's character is introduced fresh out of prison and looking to patch things up with his estranged daughter. A former thief, he's also looking to turn over a new leaf, but that plan goes down the toilet when his old partner - who believes Will stashed the $10 million they stole eight years ago - kidnaps his daughter Allison and demands payment in exchange for her life.



I'll admit, I didn't even recognize Josh Lucas as Vincent in the above trailer at first, but sure enough, he's the cab driving former partner who has kidnaps Will's daughter. It must be the hair. Also featured in the trailer is Malin Akerman, who plays Will's friend Riley.

I can't help but see shades of films like Taken and Ransom in Stolen, with the focus on a father taking active (and dangerous) measures to rescue his kid. And as Stolen teams Cage with West once again, Con Air obviously comes to mind. Simon West's 1997 action film also starred Cage as a man who was (practically) just out of prison and looking to reconnect with his family and is forced back into a dangerous situation.. The image of Cage clutching a stuffed animal in Stolen's trailer seems like a nod to that. ("Put the bunny back in the box.")

Stolen arrives in theaters September 14, 2012.
