Nicolas Cage is reportedly attached to filmmaker John McTiernan's proposed comeback film "Red Squad" at Hannibal Classics and Patriot Pictures.

Cannon and Jorge Suarez penned the story which centers on a former DEA agent with a rogue streak and his select team of mercenaries who descend upon a Mexican border town to neutralize a drug lord.

The project marks McTiernan's first film following his release from federal prison. Earlier reports indicate the film is budgeted at around $26 million.
