Nicolas Cage will be taking the lead role in an independent drama titled "The Wrestler."

"The movie tells the story of Randy ”The Ram” Robinson, a 1980s-era pro wrestler who has become a burnt-out shell of his former self. After he has a heart attack during a small-time match, a doctor tells him he could die if he fights again. He moves in with an aging stripper and takes a job at a deli, but then decides he can’t pass up an opportunity to return to the ring and fight his old nemesis, even if it means risking his life."
