Nic Cage reunites with Con Air director Simon West for action flick Medallion

12.14.2010

They teamed up to make one of the purest examples of testosterone-powered 90s action excess, and now CON AIR's mulleted hero Nicolas Cage and director Simon West are getting back together for a new project called MEDALLION.

Previously planned as a starring vehicle for Clive Owen (and then Jason Statham), the movie will now instead feature Cage as a former thief who has "only a few hours to find his daughter when she is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a New York medallion taxi cab."

The story, as you can deduce, is described as being in the vein of TAKEN. And the whole thing will be a crushing disappointment without at least one slo-mo fleeing-from-fireball moment. The script comes from hot writer David Guggenheim, who also has the Denzel Washington/Ryan Reynolds thriller SAFE HOUSE in the works.

MEDALLION is being put together by Millennium Films, who also worked with Cage on THE WICKER MAN and the upcoming DRIVE ANGRY.

Extra Tidbit: In case you missed it, Cage recently discussed the fascination with his ever-evolving hair on the JoBlo Podcast. Oh, and this also happened.
