It looks like Nicolas Cage is getting some more company to join him as he dashes around New York City in his latest thriller.

Danny Huston has closed a deal to take a role in the action pic "Medallion." From a script by the hot scribe David Guggenheim (”Safe House”), “Medallion” follows a panicked thief who has only a few hours to find his kidnapped daughter, locked in the trunk of a New York City taxicab. Yes, comparisons to “Taken” are already being made. Malin Akerman is also on board, playing Cage’s ex-girlfriend who also happens to be a former bank robber. No word yet on Huston's role in the film.

The film will reteam Cage with “Con Air” director Simon West, which is a potentially exciting prospect. The project is gearing up to start very soon in New Orleans.
