NEW YORK, July 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Falling Forward Films and Productivity Media announce the release of “The Retirement Plan” starring Nicolas Cage (‘Face/Off,’ ‘Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent,’ ‘National Treasure’), Ashley Greene (‘The Twilight Saga,’ ‘Aftermath’), and Ron Perlman (‘Hellboy,’ ‘The Baker,’ ‘Aliens 3’) exclusively in theaters 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. Their reunion is fleeting as they are soon tracked down by crime boss Donnie (Jackie Earle Haley) and his lieutenant (Ron Perlman). But the bad guys are about to get more than they bargained for because Matt is not the wacky character he appears to be.
“The Retirement Plan” features a star-studded cast that also includes Jackie Earle Haley (‘A Nightmare on Elm Street,’ ‘Watchmen,’ ‘Shutter Island’), Joel David Moore (‘Avatar Series,’ ‘Dodgeball’), Grace Byers (‘The Blackening,’ TV’s ‘Empire’) and Ernie Hudson (‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘The Crow,’ TV’s ‘Quantum Leap’). “The Retirement Plan” is directed by Tim Brown (‘Buckley’s Chance’ starring Bill Nighy, ‘The Cradle’).
“I am thrilled to be working with Falling Forward and Productivity Media on the theatrical release of this film,” says director Tim Brown. “I’m super grateful to Nic and the rest of the cast, and being able to watch this film in theaters is a childhood dream come true.”

Radiant International Films will also be handling the foreign sales.
“The Retirement Plan” is set for release in North America on August 25.
