Look out, bad-film fans: Josh Lucas might be making a play to be the new Nicolas Cage, and he’s doing it from within a Nic Cage movie! Stolen reunites Cage and his Con Air director Simon West (who also helmed last weekend’s The Expendables 2) in a film about a criminal (Cage) whose former partner (Lucas) wants a payout from an old job. To get it, he kidnaps Cage’s daughter (Sami Gayle) and drives around town with her held in his cab as Cage frantically tries to track her down with the aid of an old associate (Malin Akerman).
