Nicolas Cage was once the darling of Hollywood. He had a great start to his career, rocked the mid 90s era, has an Oscar to his name, and was even almost, Superman. However, in the recent years the actor has been in a string of laughably bad and forgettable movies. Bu hey, if you’re gonna do these kind of films, might as well go for the totally bonkers one.
The first trailer for Army of One has been released online. The story, based on a true incident, follows ex-con Gary Faulkner who is has visions from God to capture Osama Bin Laden. Yes, you read that right folks. Nic Cage is on a mission from God to capture one of the most dreaded world terrorist.
It is said that truth is often stranger than fiction. The story didn’t just come out of nowhere (or a session where folks were stoned off their asses), in fact it is based on a true story!
The film is directed Larry Charles, the man behind Borat and The Dictator, so expect to be in for something special and irreverent. Also playing God in the film is none other than British comedian Russell Brand.
Had there been a different combination of talent both in front and behind the camera, the film could easily fall apart, but seeing the combination of Cage and Charles we may be in for something decent at the least.
