Nicolas Cage's latest movie #211 has suffered a delay after the actor broke his ankle while filming in Bulgaria. A source told Deadline that he was rushed to a hospital in Sofia before being flown to Los Angeles.
Doctors wanted to perform surgery right away but the 53-year-old decided to fly to LA for the treatment. He will be required to stay off his feet for the next two weeks. Filming of the York Alec Shackleton-directed bank heist action movie is expected to face some delays until Cage recovers.
The movie #211 revolves around a police officer (Cage) who is attempting to stop a bank robbery. The film also stars Amanda Cerny, Sophie Skelton, and Michael Rainey Jr and has Yariv Lerner, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, and Scott Karp as executive producers.
The National Treasure actor's injury is bound to cause a dent in his busy schedule as well. Along with #211, he is also working on The Humanity Bureau, a sci-fi action thriller set in 2030. In the movie, global warming is wreaking havoc in parts of the American Midwest and the country is facing economic recession.
A government agency called The Humanity Bureau is charged with the job of exiling members of society deemed unproductive and banishes them to a colony known as New Eden.
Cage has also been cast in Vengeance: A Love Story, and Mom and Dad. Most recently, he was seen on the large screen in USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, Snowden, and Dog Eat Dog.
