While his choice of projects can be eclectic to say the least, Nicolas Cage is always a unique presence in whatever movie he happens to star in. Now, mix his energy with that of Jerry Lewis, who apparently makes a rare dramatic turn in the upcoming “The Trust,” and you have our interest piqued.
Also starring Elijah Wood and Sky Ferreira, the dramedy from music video directors Alex and Benjamin Brewer follows two Las Vegas cops who hatch a scheme that quickly gets beyond their control. Here’s the synopsis:
A dramatic comedy about Waters and Stone, two nobody police officers who work in the evidence room of the Las Vegas Police Department. When Stone discovers an unusually high bail receipt in connection to a drug bust, the two friends set in motion a plan to find the source of the money.
“The Trust” premieres this month at SXSW, arrives on DirecTV on April 14th will open in cinemas and hit VOD on May 13th. Watch the first trailer below.
