What can’t Nicolas Cage do? Recently, he took on one of the most iconic roles ever, Dracula, in Renfield. And then Nicolas Cage went on to take on an even more epic role, himself as he transformed into a playable survivor in the survival horror game Dead by Daylight. Now, he’s about to transform again, this time into a grandfather who can really pack a punch. Check out Nicolas Cage as the grandpa assassin in the trailer for his upcoming movie, The Retirement Plan.
The thing about Nicolas Cage is that he’s always prominently Nicolas Cage. But we love to see the various guises he can put on for his roles, both literally and acting-wise. The Retirement Plan looks like just the kind of ridiculous fun we expect from a Nicolas Cage movie.
Deadline shares more about the movie’s plot, revealing:
In The Retirement Plan, when Ashley (Ashley Greene) and her young daughter Sarah (Thalia Campbell) get caught up in a criminal enterprise that puts their lives at risk, she turns to the only person who can help – her estranged father Matt (Nicolas Cage), a retired beach bum. Their reunion is fleeting as they are soon tracked down by crime boss Donnie (Jackie Earle Haley) and his lieutenant (Ron Perlman). The bad guys get more than they bargained for because Matt is not the wacky character he appears to be.
We wouldn’t want to take on a Nic Cage disturbed from his beachy rest… Especially not if there’s a glass bottle within reach. What we’re saying is, good luck to the bad guys in The Retirement Plan, they are certainly going to need it in spades. Because yeah, Nicolas Cage’s Matt, father and grandfather, is totally an assassin. Honestly, we’re ready to add The Retirement Plan to our list of films to watch when we’re ready to just laugh at the absurdity a lot.
This latest Nicolas Cage movie will arrive in theaters on August 25. Time to make a plan to see The Retirement Plan.
