Exclusive: Danny Huston Joins Nicolas Cage In 'Medallion'

It looks like Nicolas Cage is getting some more company to join him as he dashes around New York City in his latest thriller.

Danny Huston has closed a deal to take a role in the action pic “Medallion.” From a script by the hot scribe David Guggenheim (”Safe House”), “Medallion” follows a panicked thief who has only a few hours to find his kidnapped daughter, locked in the trunk of a New York City taxicab. Yes, comparisons to “Taken” are already being made. Malin Akerman is also on board, playing Cage’s ex-girlfriend who also happens to be a former bank robber. No word yet on Huston’s role in the film.

The film will reteam Cage with “Con Air” director Simon West, which is a potentially exciting prospect. The project is gearing up to start very soon in New Orleans.
