While a definitive release date has yet to be locked down, a poster and a collection of stills has debuted for the new Nicolas Cage thriller "Stolen" (formerly "Medallion," which made it sound like a negligible Jackie Chan movie), with the appropriately Nic Cage-y tagline: "12 hours. $10 million. 1 kidnapped daughter." We're not sure about the math, but we're certainly excited about the movie!

Man, it's been way too long since word of a new Nic Cage movie. But rest assured, he's bringing his trunk full of crazy wigs to a brand new film, and it sounds as improbable as everything else he's done recently.

This is a slight paraphrasing of the truth. A couple of years ago, an eccentric award-winning actor had a choice: He could star in an unreasonable amount of movies of declining quality, stockpiling paychecks as his reputation and brand diminished. Or he could sell his dinosaurs bones and castles to appease the IRS and become significantly less weird. Well, here's to Nicolas Cage for keeping it weirder than ever, movies be damned.

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice," "Season of the Witch," "Drive Angry," "Seeking Justice," "Trespass," "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance." Is that it? Is Nicolas Cage finally done paying that tax bill? Can he go back to making interesting movies in-between the action pay-days again? Sadly, we doubt it, but here's a project that should make Cage a chunk of change without having to lift a finger.

Review: 'Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance' Is A Metal Album In Cinematic Form

The Marvel Comics character of Ghost Rider has always been more than a little alternative. Considerably darker and more haunted that contemporaries like Spider-Man and the Hulk, the demonic creation of trio Roy Thomas, Gary Friedrich and Mike Ploog found himself starring in more horror-centric stories, only ocassionally clashing with sunnier heroes in sales-boosting stunts. While the comic creation existed on the fringe of the industry, Mark Steven Johnson's 2007 adaptation "Ghost Rider" was a far more generic, populist attempt to appeal to the masses. It was, by design, a pop song, except it viewed itself as a catchier Massive Attack track when it was more of an O-Town b-side. Bring the kiddies.

Was there something in the air? Maybe. While the 1983 flick "Valley Girl" was (until now) a relic -- a particular kind of movie, from a particular era -- the film is not without its legion of fans, and is known for its breakout performance by a young Nicolas Cage. Last summer, Kevin Smith hit the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York to screen the film and host a talk afterward with the film's director Martha Coolidge. It was a surprisingly fascinating talk, full of many revelations (read our recap here) and so it seems that in the power corridors of Hollywood there are some fans as well, as the movie is headed for a remake.

Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor Talk African Tribal Dancing, Mimicking Pink Floyd & Making 'Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance'

Coming from the grimier, gonzo world of "Crank," it was something of a surprise to see directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor take the helm of Sony blockbuster "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance." While the first film was a $228 million hit, Sony definitely wanted to take this prospective franchise in a different direction. And fortunately for the hands-on duo, who also shoot all their second unit footage themselves, they were given free reign by Marvel Studios to put their stamp on the film.

Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor Say There's Already Talks About A 'Ghost Rider 3'; Still Considering 'Crank 3D'

There is no doubt when watching a movie directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, that it was made by anybody else. The pair made their name with kinetic and electric "Crank" films, and recently graduated to comic tenptoles, helming the upcoming "Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance." Known for their unorthodox methods -- which includes strapping on roller blades, and grabbing a camera so they can get right into the action -- the film they make are distinctly their own, and comic book movies have never quite looked the way 'Vengeance' does. And while they haven't yet decided on what their next project will be, if things go well, they could be working with Nicolas Cage again very soon.

What is it about Nicolas Cage that with each increasingly shitacular movie, we still want to see the next one? Could it be his growing collection of wigs that fascinates us? Or perhaps our ongoing curiosity to see just how far back his hairline receded now? Or maybe it's the pure, unfiltered crazy that still makes him so watchable in even the most worthless of thrown-together movies? No matter how you slice it, even when Cage is at his worst he's at his best, and he's got an idea for what could be the greatest terrible movie ever.

There are two ways we can approach this story, either as a statement on Canadian director Bruce McDonald's seemingly endless slate of projects or as yet another journey for the helmer into music based material. But really, both apply. Coming off a year that saw McDonald release "Hardcore Logo 2," the short film "A Love Supreme" as well as get behind the camera on a handful of TV projects, 2012 is barely two weeks old and he's already packing up his schedule.
