Malin Akerman Likely for Medallion

ON

Malin Akerman is up for a leading role in the Simon West thriller Medallion, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Akerman would star opposite Nicolas Cage in the film, which sees the Drive Angry actor as a former criminal who has to track down his kidnapped daughter who has been locked in the trunk of a taxi cab in New York City.

Akerman’s role would be that of Cage’s character’s ex-girlfriend, with whom he robbed banks prior to his incarceration.

West, following his recent helming of The Mechanic, will direct for Millennium Entertainment with a script courtesy of David Guggenheim (the upcoming Safe House).
