Malin Akerman Takes a Ride on Nicolas Cage’s Medallion

Add Malin Akerman as the love interest in Nicolas Cage’s “Taken”-like thriller “Medallion”. Or, at least, as much of a love interest as you can possibly get in a movie starring Nicolas Cage where stuff blows up.

The former “Watchmen” superhero will play a “former girlfriend and former bank robber” who agrees to help Cage’s character save his daughter by bad guys that have stuffed her into the trunk of a New York taxi cab. Our hero must search out the right cab in a city famous for having the most cabs of any State.

Simon West, who last directed Cage in the blow’em up spectacular “Con Air” will helm the film, which is set to shoot in New Orleans, where fronting for New York.
