It's hard to keep up with the random projects Nicolas Cage takes on, so we completely forgot about "Outcast," which was first announced two years ago. And so it seems the film has made, as a trailer has arrived. And as you might guess, it's very Nic Cage.

Outcast

It's hard to keep up with the random projects Nicolas Cage takes on, so we completely forgot about "Outcast," which was first announced two years ago. And so it seems the film has made, as a trailer has arrived. And as you might guess, it's very Nic Cage.

Co-starring Hayden Christensen (who wears the hippest haircut the 12th century has ever seen), the story follows a couple of battle of warriors from the Crusades who get mixed up in a plot that's too confusing to summarize here, so instead, read the official synopsis: Ancient China - Princess Lian and her younger brother, Zhao, flee for their lives when their father, the Emperor, is murdered by his ambitious eldest son Shing. Pursued by Shing's black guards, the royal runaways find protection in the form of Arken, a hardened knight seeking redemption from the traumatic nightmares of the Crusades as he searches for his former friend and mentor, Gallain, now a notorious bandit on the silk road. Their gruelling journey sees an unlikely romance bloom between the refined princess and the gruff warrior and Zhao learns the true meaning of leadership from this western warrior. Setting aside their differences, Aarken and Gallain once again fight side by side in an epic and unwinnable battle against Shing and his forces - only this time they are fighting for something they both believe in.

Stuntman Nick Powell ("Resident Evil: Retribution," "The Three Musketeers") makes his directorial debut with the movie, and apparently it opens on February 27, 2015. At least according to IMDB. But no matter when it comes out, the film at least guarantees a bug-eyed Cage performance, enhanced by a terrible accent and at least one sequence where he cackles. And that's all you need, right? Watch below. [Deadline]
