Ghost Rider actor Nicolas Cage is collaborating with Borat director Larry Charles in the movie Army of One which focuses on a regular guy, who tries to find Osama bin Laden.

The satire movie is loosely based on a GQ article about a Colorado man named Gary Faulkner who tried to catch Osama bin Laden.

Armed with a sword, night-vision goggles and little else, Faulkner sneaked into Pakistan and Afghanistan over a dozen times to carry out his mission, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Army of One is set to start production in late March. The movie written by Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph (Draft Day) is targetting a 2016 release date.

Faulkner, a construction worker, made headlines after he was arrested during his eleventh mission in Pakistan carrying a sword, a dagger and a pistol among other things in 2010.
