Movie superstar Nicolas Cage is set to play a veteran champion boxer who lifts prison inmates's spirits in a new movie being developed by his production company.

The Con Air actor will star as BILLY 'THE KID' ROTH, an ex-fighter who has volunteered as a boxing tutor for 44 years in Louisiana, America, prisons.

Cage said in a statement, "Billy Roth's story truly spoke to my heart; despite the darkness and intense despair, an unlikely and flawed character is able to find and provide hope to others."

The life of Billy Roth has already been covered in the documentary THE DANCE - THE BILLY ROTH STORY, and that film's producers will team up with Cage's SATURN FILMS to make the movie.
