From legendary director Paul Schrader (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver) and producer Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives) comes the refreshingly original thriller, Dying of the Light. Nicolas Cage (Tokarev, Frozen Ground) delivers a blistering, unforgettable performance as Evan Lake, a desk-bound Langley CIA agent forced into retirement by signs of early onset dementia. At the same time he discovers that his former tormentor, Jihadist Muhhamed Banir (Alexander Karim – Zero Dark Thirty), is not dead as assumed for two decades but is alive and receiving experimental medical treatment. Banir's exact location is unknown but with the help of a disgraced young agent (Anton Yelchin – Odd Thomas, Star Trek), Evan sets out to track down and confront him before it is too late for both of them.
