Johannesburg, Feb 10 (ANI): Taking over the role of a vigilante cop from Samuel L. Jackson, Nicolas Cage is all set to star in the police thriller ‘Vengeance: A Love Story.’

The Harold Becker-directed thriller, which is based on a 2003 novel by Joyce Carol Oates titled ‘Rape: A Love Story,’ revolves around the aftermath of a gang rape, Channel 24 reported.

The plot tells the story of single mother Teena who is sexually assaulted by a group of men whilst her young daughter Bethie is forced to watch and then left to die in a park boathouse.

Despite a court case, Teena’s attackers go free. After the men get off, Gulf War veteran-turned-police officer Dromoor, played by Cage, decides to take matters into his own hands and deliver retribution for Teena.
