Nicolas Cage’s latest film finds the Oscar-winning actor in a surreal comedy about one man’s hunt for Osama bin Laden.
In “Army of One,” Cage stars as Gary Faulkner, “an ex-con, unemployed handyman, and modern-day Don Quixote,” who heads to Pakistan after a vision of God — played by Russell Brand — tells him to find bin Laden, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The film is loosely based on a 2010 GQ article, which details how the real-life Faulkner attempted to capture the Al Qaeda leader in Pakistan while “equipped with little more than a sword he’d bought on a home-shopping network.”
“Army of One” is directed by Larry Charles (“Borat,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and written by renowned playwright Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman. It costars Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), and Paul Scheer (“The League”).
The film will be released to video on demand on November 4 before arriving on Blu-ray November 15.
