Nicolas Cage returns to cinema screens this month in Stolen, an action thriller set during 10 frantic hours on New Orleans’ Mardi Gras day.
The film has been directed by Simon West who helmed Cage’s 1997 blockbuster Con Air and co-stars Josh Lucas, Danny Huston, Malin Akerman, Sami Gayle, Mark Valley and M.C. Gainey.
Cage plays Will Montgomery, a master thief who has been sent to prison for 8 years after being double-crossed in a heist gone awry. Upon his release, he’s ready to leave his criminal past behind and rebuild his relationship with estranged daughter, Alison Loeb (Gayle).
Montgomery’s former criminal cohorts and FBI agent Tim Harlend (Huston), are all convinced that the loot, totaling $10 Million dollars worth of bonds, was hidden away by Montgomery before he was sentenced.
In order to get his hands on it, former partner in crime, Vincent (Lucas), kidnap his daughter Alison and demand the loot as ransom; keeping her in a soundproofed trunk of a taxi cab where she is nearly impossible to be discovered. Montgomery has only one day to deliver the $10 Million ransom, but much to the disbelief of both Vincent and the FBI, he doesn’t have it.
Montgomery is left with only one choice: To trust his instincts and join forces with another old partner in crime, the beautiful and smart Riley Jeffers (Akerman). Together they must pull off one more heist so he can get his daughter back… before it’s too late.
Released by Lionsgate UK, Stolen hits cinemas across the UK on March 22, 2013 with previews from March 20th.
