In the plot of the proposed feature, Cage’s character is desperate for a part in the latest Quentin Tarantino film. At the same time, the actor has to manage a difficult relationship with his teenage daughter. Straining under the weight of mounting debts, Cage is forced to accept an invitation to appear at the birthday party of a Mexican billionaire, who is a fan of his work. Shortly after the two men become friends, the CIA informs Cage that his new associate is a member of a drug cartel, which has kidnapped the daughter of a Mexican presidential candidate.

The project is to be produced by Kevin Turen (“Euphoria”), Mike Nilon and Saturn Films, and Nicolas Cage’s company.
