‘Stolen’ Trailer: Nicolas Cage & Simon West’s New Orleans Heist Film

Published 3 years ago by , Updated March 3rd, 2014 at 11:58 am,

In 1997, first time director Simon West partnered with up-and-coming action star Nicolas Cage for Con Air. For West it was the start of a successful directing career, which has since included helming Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Mechanic, and most recently The Expendables 2. And, as we all know, Nicolas Cage has assumed a role as one of the hardest working men in Hollywood.

Now the two are reuniting, nearly 15 years later, for the film Stolen. We hadn’t heard much about Stolen up until now, aside from early details back when it was titled Medallion, but the first trailer for Stolen will keep audiences well informed.

In the film, Nicolas Cage plays Will Montgomery; a skilled thief who – through some old fashioned double crossing – ends up serving 8 years in prison. Now free, Montgomery must try to repair the life he left behind – principally his relationship with his daughter Allison (Sami Gayle).

Unfortunately, Will’s old partner Vincent (The Firm‘s Josh Lucas) has other plans. Vincent kidnaps Allison, places her in the back of a taxi, and asks Will to recover the $10 Million in bonds he is believed to have stored before entering prison. Ticking clocks, FBI agents on Will’s tail, and a secret about the money all stand in Will’s way, and it’s up to him to complete one last job, lest he never see Allison again.

It’s not a completely new plot – reasonably upstanding guy with a troubled past must use his skills to steal “something” for the bad guys – but the presence of Nicolas Cage is always a wild card. Part of me likes to imagine that this is Nicolas Cage’s character from Con Air a few years down the road – just look at the stuffed animal he’s purchased for the reunion with his daughter, and you’ll see what I mean.

Cage’s real-life residence of New Orleans is used as a backdrop for Stolen, and helps provide a city always on-the-go and in constant need of taxis. West could have gone for New York, but there’s no doubt Cage was able to convince him New Orleans was a perfect spot to shoot.

In addition to Cage and Lucas, Stolen features Danny Huston (Magic City) as one of the FBI agents on his tail, and Malin Akerman (Watchmen) as a former cohort of Will’s, who must once again help him pull off a large heist. David Guggenheim (Safe House) wrote the script and Millenium Films is handling the domestic distribution.

Stolen will be out in Theaters on September 14, 2012.

  1. Another movie…Go Nic!!;)

  2. What was stolen? Someone’s toupee?

  3. Simon West is a busy man.

  4. Why Nic Cage isn’t banging on Jerry Bruckheimer’s door, begging to work for food on National Treasure 3, is beyond me. This man used to be money…WHAT HAPPENED?!?

  5. i dont get y so many ppl dislike nic cage i mean his a good actor altho he was in some bad movies last year. this movie looks ok tho

  6. Haha Josh Lucas looks hilarious in this.. I love the old school trailer with the narrator.. well the sad excuse for a narrator. I love Nic Cage, when he’s on I truely believe he’s one of the greats (The Weather Man, Bad Leutenant, matchstick men, Family man)… unfortunatley, he makes a lot of stinkers.

  7. So this isn’t based on the video game about the cat burglar? Damn…

  8. Nic Cage shouting on the phone… Nic Cage scowling at the camera… Nic Cage running over the top of cars in traffic… Explosions… green lazer lights flashing here and there… Its so 90′s…

  9. Awesome!!! I LOVE PARODY Movies! Nothing like a good joke.

  10. wooow amazing,i´m wondered that his movies don´t get released straight to d.v.d. i think the last time his movies weren´t successfull at the box-office. but he is still a good actor.

  11. Ugh, generic action film staring Nic Cage. Even the voice over sounded generic.

    no thanks

  12. Does anyone believe that the title ‘Stolen’ wasn’t a direct attempt at evoking ‘Taken’?

    • That is so obvious I’m amazed at how shameless Cage is. Kidnapped daughter. How original. Talk about putting a nail in the coffin of your career.

  13. lol Gone in 60 Seconds anyone?

  14. Nicolas Cage is definitely one of the best actors of my time; everything he has ever participated in has been a pleasure to watch. Xmaseve, I have to agree with you; if Cage teamed up with Bruckheimer for a movie, I believe I would faint from over stimulation. Due to long airport wait times and nights in hotels, most of my business travels for Dish are full of opportunities to enjoy my favorite pastime of watching movies. I get most of my movies from Dish Online when I’m traveling, since it’s easy with the internet and they always have a great selection of Nicolas movies. He is such a unique actor, and he picks out some cool roles. I like the previous name Medallion quite a bit more than the single syllable “Stolen”, but either way I’m sure Cage will not disappoint.

  15. It’s spelled millennium. Two Ns. The word millennium does not have one N in it.
