Academy Award-winning Nicolas Cage could never be accused of being a script snob, with a CV boasting movies both big budget and small. Cue Running with the Devil.
Also starring another Academy Award winner in Laurence Fishburne, judging by the trailer this isn’t the biggest budget affair – maybe it all went on paying the actors? – but it’s always fun to see Cage going off.
Story-wise, Cage is The Cook, while Fishburne is The Man. They’re members of a drug cartel that has a breakdown somewhere in its network. Guess who’s given the job of tracking it down and sorting it?
Also starring Leslie Bibb, Barry Pepper and Cole Hauser, Running with the Devil is set for a cinema run in the US in September. We currently have no Australian release date.
