Nicolas Cage Joins John McTiernan’s Red Squad, Al Pacino Too? – ManlyMovie

Nicolas Cage Joins John McTiernan’s Red Squad, Al Pacino Too?

Last night we updated y’all with details on the story of John McTiernan’s comeback movie.  Afterwards the John McTiernan Database to provide us on some further updates.  Thanks to them, here is what we have learned…

Nicolas Cage has joined the cast of the movie according to this magazine, something that was confirmed again by this source which features a variation of one of two posters released for the movie with Cage’s name on it.  Now this shouldn’t be surprising as the same production company, Hannibal Classics, is responsible for Tokarev, so Cage seems to be under contract with them.

Next, the following promotional company emanating from Germany has Al Pacino listed in their trivia section for the movie, alongside Nicolas Cage and an additional teaser poster.  Lastly according to screen international the movie will have a budget of $26,000,000 and have a release date of January 2015, although we’ve also heard summer 2015 be speculated.

Oh, and Laurent Eyquem, who recently scored Tokarev (2014), starring Nicolas Cage and Danny Glover, is going to score the movie.  So that’s all we got for now on Red Squad.  But we’ll be sure to get all pertinent information up as it comes in.  I guess Tokarev will be one to watch this year now…

      Cage can do whatever the hell he wants. Under McTiernan, it sounds like action gold.

      True that, mate! Nicolas Cage is a GOD among actors, he’s so talented that Brando wasn’t worthy to trim his long eyebrows and his face is like if Michelangelo had an epiphany when used the toilet. This movie will be the ressurection of GREAT cinema like ‘Season of the Witch’, “Bad Lieutenant – Port of New Orleans” or “Ghost Rider 2 – Spirit of Vengeance”. I surely can’t wait for this action masterpiece… Go Nic Go!!

    Action gold ? I guess you never watched a real action movie. Another Nic Cage fanboy.
    Cage is a joke as an actor, if we can call him that ! The put the bunny back in the box scene says it all !

      This movie needs Sean FUCKIN’ Penn!! His punchable face will work wonders alongside dickhead Cage. If hollywood ever make a movie about a phallus, Cage, Penn and Tom Hanks can be the protagonists as the ‘holy trinity’.

    Cage ruins everything that he touches. Mctiernan made a bad move here.

    Cage and Pacino careers are on the toillet already. Although Cage is to Pacino like a turd is to a cake, Mctiernan made a casting mistake here.

      This movie needs Cuba Gooding Jr, His “show me the money” acting in Jerry Maguire is so good that surely he didn’t won an Oscar because he’s black.

      Politically correct Hollywood. Most of the times awards what pleases instead of the real talent. Same as the ones of Halle Berry and Sean Penn.
