The first trailer for The Retirement Plan, the new action comedy starring Nicolas Cage, has been released.

In The Retirement Plan, Cage plays Matt, a beach bum retiree called upon by his granddaughter to rescue his estranged daughter Ashley (Ashley Greene) from a criminal gang. Ashley quickly learns that her father may be an assassin after he kills every bad guy thrown his way. The Retirement Plan is scheduled for release in theaters on August 25.

“When Ashley (Ashley Greene) and her young daughter Sarah (Thalia Campbell) get caught up in a criminal enterprise that puts their lives at risk, she turns to the only person who can help – her estranged father Matt (Nicolas Cage), a retired beach bum,” the synopsis reads. “Their reunion is fleeting as they are soon tracked down by crime boss Donnie (Jackie Earle Haley) and his lieutenant (Ron Perlman). The bad guys get more than they bargained for because Matt is not the wacky character he appears to be.”
