Though he’s coming off of the train wreck which was Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Nicolas Cage still needs needs money, badly. That means that 2010 will probably become the “Year of Cage,” with at least 6 of his films getting theatrical release next year. One of those films is Season of the Witch, which already looks like a front runner for the 2010 Razzie Awards.
The film’s plot is pretty straightforward: Nicolas Cage is a knight who is set to transport an alleged witch to a monastery, where a monk declares her powers could be the source of the Black Plague. Basically replace Bruce Willis and Mos Def from 16 Blocks with Nicolas Cage, a witch, and black magic, all taking place in Medieval Times.
Check out the brand new trailer after the jump, which admittedly has some cool moments, even if the use of Nicolas Cage and a recycled plot may be present. The film, directed by Whiteout’s Domenick Sena, hits theaters nation-wide on March 19th, 2010.
