Nicolas Cage Old & Shaky But Not Scared in 'Dying of the Light' Trailer
There's a chance we just might get a break from the terrible films that Nicolas Cage has been making lately. Director Paul Schrader (writer of Raging Bull and Taxi Driver) is entering espionage thriller territory with Dying of the Light, and Cage isn't playing the kind of protagonist you'd expect. Complete with grayed hair, and a shaky, elderly demeanor, Cage plays an ailing veteran CIA agent who is hellbent on taking down a terrorist who has evaded him for years. This doesn't look half bad, but Shrader hasn't directed the best films throughout his career. At least it looks better than Cage's other recent work. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for Paul Schrader's Dying of the Light, originally from Apple:
Dying of the Light is written and directed Paul Schrader (director of The Canyons, Adam Resurrected and writer of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull). Nicolas Cage ignites a powder keg of action in this electrifying cloak-and-dagger thriller. Evan Lake (Cage), a veteran CIA agent, has been ordered to retire due to increasing dimentia. But when his protégé (Anton Yelchin) uncovers evidence that Lake's nemesis, the terrorist Banir (Alexander Karim), has resurfaced, Lake goes rogue, embarking on a perilous, intercontinental mission to eliminate his sworn enemy. Lionsgate releases the film on December 5th.
