Posted by Karen Benardello On May - 19 - 2014 0 Comment

Nicolas Cage has been cast in the lead role of the upcoming contemporary political film, ‘The Runner.’ The drama marks the writing and directorial debuts from Austin Star, who has gained recognition for executive producing such independent films as ‘Infinitely Polar Bear’ and ‘Happythankyoumoreplease.’

‘The Runner’ will be produced by Benji Kohn, Bingo Gubelmann and Chris Papavasiliou for Paper Street Films and Glenn Williamson for Back Lot Pictures. Production is set to begin on June 23 in New Orleans.

Cage will star as as Colin Price, an idealistic but flawed New Orleans congressman, in ‘The Runner.’ In the aftermath of the 2010 BP oil spill, Colin’s forced to confront his dysfunction life, after his career is destroyed in a sex scandal.

Stark, a partner at Paper Street Films, a New York City film production and finance company, said “For my first film as a director, I’m honored to be working alongside one of the finest living actors, Nicolas Cage. ‘The Runner’, a contemporary political drama, is new and exciting territory for Mr. Cage. I have no doubt he’s going to deliver a powerful and poignant performance, as relevant as the film itself.”
