With just over a month before it lands digitally, Yahoo Movies has debuted the first US trailer and poster. Cage is of course very well-versed in a genre like this, and remains amongst the most prolific within it.
When the Russian mob kidnaps the daughter of a reformed criminal, he rounds up his old crew and seeks his own brand of justice.
Starring alongside Cage will be Rachel Nichols, Max Ryan, Michael McGrady, Peter Stormare, Pasha D. Lychnikoff, Patrice Cols, Weston Cage, Max Fowler, Aubrey Peeples, and Jack Falahee, with Danny Glover also making an appearance.
Spanish helmer Paco Cabezas (The Appeared) is said to have been sought by Cage to take the director’s chair, with a script by Jim Agnew and Sean Keller (Giallo). Cage’s past collaborator Michael Mendelsohn (Lord of War) produces alongside Richard Rionda Del Castro (Casino Jack).
Cage is coming off the back of very strong reviews for his leading performance in David Gordon Green’s drama, Joe, which debuted at Venice last year and will soon be arriving in the UK. He also has a slew of upcoming projects on his slate, including Nick Powell’s actioner, Outcast, co-starring Hayden Christensen; Vic Armstrong’s Left Behind, co-starring Chad Michael Murray, Cassi Thomson, and Nicky Whelan; and perhaps most interestingly, Paul Schrader’s The Dying of the Light, a dramatic thriller co-starring Anton Yelchin.
Rage will be released in the US on VOD on June 10th, before heading into cinemas a month later on July 11th. No word yet on a UK release date.
