Now playing in limited release and coming to home video/VOD/On Demand November 15th is one of the craziest movies you’re likely to see this year: Army of One. Directed by Larry Charles, who previously helmed Borat, Bruno, and The Dictator, the film is based on the true story of Gary Faulkner, who went to Pakistan with a sword to hunt down Osama bin Laden. Nicolas Cage is playing Faulkner in the film, who receives his mission while having a vision of God (Russell Brand). Like I said, it’s bonkers. Army of One also stars Wendi McLendon-Covey, Paul Scheer and Rainn Wilson. For more on the film watch the trailer or this clip.
Last week I landed an exclusive interview with Nicolas Cage to talk about playing Faulkner. He revealed how he got involved in the project, what it was like collaborating with Larry Charles, and how the film shows what he actually did like trying to sail to Pakistan from San Diego. In addition, Cage talked about his thoughts on some of the recent superhero movies, how Brian Taylor’s Mom and Dad will “really going to push the envelope, it’s going to piss a lot of people off and it’s going to excite a lot of people,” and a lot more.
