How A Nic Cage Movie Is Sort Of Involved In The Brittney Griner Case In Russia

0

The case of WNBA star Brittney Griner has drawn attention from all over the world, whether or not you’re a fan of the WNBA. The basketball star has been held in Russia since February, but the U.S. government has been working to get her released. It’s now being reported that the Biden administration is trying to secure Griner’s release by offering Russia the Lord of War, which is a title that may sound familiar if you’re a Nicolas Cage fan.

In 2005 Nicolas Cage starred in a movie called Lord of War where he played an international arms dealer. While much of the movie is fiction, the character Cage played was inspired by an actual person, a Russian arms dealer named Viktor Bout. Even the title of the film comes from a nickname Bout acquired while using his air charter business to smuggle weapons around the world.
