Nicolas Cage is a daddy gunslinger in old road clip
Nicolas Cage shows his daughter the gunslinger in new footage from the legendary star's debut western, "The Old Way."
Nicolas Cage plays a gunslinger with a fatherly side in new footage from the western "The Old Way." Over the course of his long career, Cage has dabbled in nearly every genre, including action, comedy, thriller, horror, and even superhero flicks. But surprisingly, one genre of cinema that Cage hasn't touched in decades is the Western. That's all changing now, though, as the actor is finally set to star in his first cowboy movie, a revenge tale called The Old Way.
In fact, Cage's loyal fans saw the first trailer for The Old Way back in November. Now Collider has released new footage from the film, in which Cage, the gunman, with the assistance of his daughter (Ryan Kiera Armstrong), disarms some very rough villains. Check out the new, tense clip from Saban Films in the space below:

Everything We Know About The Old Way
The Old Way's official synopsis is here:
Once a notorious gunfighter, Colton Briggs buries his past when he marries and starts a family. Years later, Briggs suffers a personal tragedy when the outlaw son of a man he killed returns to exact revenge, resulting in the death of his wife. Accompanied by his daughter, Briggs sets out to find his wife's killer and avenge her.
In addition to Cage and newcomer Armstrong, The Old Way's cast includes Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead), Noah Legros (1883), Nick Searsey (Justice), Abraham Benruby (ER), Clint Howard (Apollo 13), Kerry Knupe (R.I.P.D. 2), Adam Lazar White (Will & Grace), Craig Branham (Hulk) and Beau Linnell (You Can't Run Forever). Brett Donovo (Violence) directed the film from a script by Carl W. Lucas (Don't Blink).
In addition to being notable as Cage's first foray into the Western genre, The Old Road is also notable for its unfortunate connection to Alec Baldwin's tragic film Rusty and the death of cinematographer Halena Hutchins And striking. As The New York Post reported in 2021, Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who also held that role at The Old Way, was involved in a firearms incident without Event to fire in case of warning. The incident reportedly resulted in Cage screaming "you blew the fuck out of my eardrums" before storming off the set in a rage. Gutierrez-Reed was later accused of being responsible for Hutchins' death on the Rust set.
Where You Can See The Old Way
The Western film genre may not be a huge theatrical attraction at the moment. However, Cage still has enough appeal to warrant a theatrical release for many of his films. And The Old Way is no exception, as it will be in limited release beginning January 6, 2023. Movies will be available on streaming and/or VOD shortly. But considering this may be Cage's only time in a Western, his fans might as well head to theaters to experience this special event on the big screen.
