Nicolas Cage to play disgraced Congressman in `The Runner`
Actor Nicolas Cage is set to play Colin Price, a New Orleans congressman dealing with the aftermath of sex scandal and BP oil spill, in `The Runner`.
The political thriller will take place in the aftermath of the tragic BP oil spill happening in 2010, reportedly.
Producer Austin Stark (`Infinitely Polar Bear`) is confirmed to sit behind the lens, making his writing and directorial debut with the upcoming project.
"For my first film as a director, I`m honoured to be working alongside one of the finest living actors, Nicolas Cage. `The Runner`, a contemporary political drama, is new and exciting territory for Mr Cage," Stark said.
I have no doubt he`s going to deliver a powerful and poignant performance, as relevant as the film itself," he added.
Cage, 50, was last seen starring in `Joe` last year with young actor Tye Sheridan. His next movies include crime thriller `Rage`, biblical thriller `Left Behind`, and action film `Outcast`.
