Nicolas Cage as Congressman Colin Price Deals with the Politics of the BP Oil Spill in THE RUNNER

 Nicolas Cage has made a name for himself by starring in some pretty good films.  However, during the last couple of years, the star has been seen in a thread of  “D” grade movies.  In fact, the movies have received little to no mainstream attention – Stolen, Joe and Left Behind, for instance.   Cage’s newest role in THE RUNNER draws from recent historical events for a story of political drama.
In
the aftermath of the BP oil spill, an idealistic but imperfect New Orleans
politician’s (Nicolas Cage) life and career are derailed by corruption, scandal
and deceit. In this contemporary political thriller, Nicolas Cage delivers a
powerful and poignant performance as relevant as the film itself. Also stars
Sarah Paulson, Connie Nielsen, Wendell Pierce, Bryan Batt and Peter Fonda.
 
 The first trailer for The Runner introduces Cage as Louisiana Congressman Colin Price, who attempts to fight the oil lobby after he sees the harm done to his constituents by the BP oil spill. However, Price then finds himself embroiled in a sex scandal when his misdeeds are caught on camera, which affects his political agenda.

Take a look at how Nicolas Cage performs as Congressman Colin Price in the trailer below.

THE RUNNER coming soon to theaters.
