Malin Akerman Teams Up With Nic Cage for Medallion


Nicolas Cage will continue his pattern of appearing in flicks alongside blond actresses who are younger, more attractive, and sexier than him: Malin Akerman has been picked to appear in the new Cage film Medallion. The Simon West–helmed film features Cage as a father and former thief who has only a few hours to find his daughter, who has been kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a medallion taxi cab. Akerman will play Cage's former girlfriend — and fellow bank robber — who helps him save his daughter. The Italian Job meets Taken, anyone? [HR]
