Heat Vision Blog reports that Nicolas Cage will star in the action adventure Medallion for Millennium Films.

We first reported on the project back in October, when director Simon West came aboard. Safe House screenwriter David Guggenheim will write the script, which focuses on a former thief who has just hours to track down his daughter, who was kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a New York City cab.

Millennium Films will distribute the project and is currently out to financiers. McG is producing along with James A. Holt, Jesse Kennedy and Matthew Joynes.

No production schedule was released for Medallion at this time.
