Ostensibly, Outcast is an historical drama set during the Crusades about two disillusioned Knights Templar who decide to protect the children of an assassinated Chinese emperor from their uncle who desires the throne. But it also has Nicolas Cage in it, so it’s probably best to prepare for anything.
The film also stars Hayden Christensen as Cage’s former brother-in-arms. But to be fair, it’s hard to get anyone to notice you when you’re next to a Nicolas Cage who has grown a beard, taken on a vaguely British accent, and begun calling himself “The White Ghost.”
Outcast opens in China on Sept. 26, but anyone in the States clamoring to see Nic Cage go all Nic Cage over Crusades-era China will have to wait until Feb. 27.
