Hollywood action star Nicolas Change is set to play the role as the “White Ghost” in Arclight Films newest pic, “Outcast.” Read on to learn more about the trailer and synopsis for Nicolas Cage’s newest film.
Cage’s newest period action film recently released its trailer exclusively on Deadline. Aside from Cage, the film stars Hayden Christensen, Liu Yifei, Summer Jikejunyi and Andy On.
“Outcast” is set in 12th century China. It follows the story of a heir to the imperial throne who becomes the target of assassination conspired by his despised older brother.
The young prince’s only means of survival is the protection of his sister and the reluctant aid of war-weary Crusader, Arken (Hayden Christensen), who must overcome his own personal demons and rally the assistance of the legendary Crusader turned bandit. Gallain (Nicolas Cage), dubbed as the “White Ghost” by locals, returns to put the prince to his rightful place on the throne.
The Chinese-Canadian-French co-production was shot on location in China under stunt pro-turned-director Nick Powell, who was known for his contributions in the “Bourne Identity” and “Resident Evil: Retribution,” will be making his directorial debut from a script penned by scribe James Dormer.
Canton, Jean-Francois Doray, Mike Gabrawy, Mike Nilon and Andrew Mann are executive producers. “Outcast” is co-produced and sponsored by Yunnan Film Group, with Arclight gaining rights for international and multiple territory rights for distribution.
Cage has recently showed in films such as “The Weather Man, “Lord of War,” “The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” and “Kick-Ass” — all earning critical acclaim. He also starred in both “Ghost Rider” and “Knowing,” which were all box-office hits.
“Outcast” was initially and officially announced on the Arclight films website in 2013, with Principal Photography started on April in the southwestern Chinese province of Yunnan.
Producer Jeremy Bolt has announced about the plans for the sequel to the film. “Outcast” is slated for release on Sept. 26, 2014 in China and Feb. 27, 2015 in United States.
