John Carpenter’s, Riot, which still goes under it’s original title Scared Straight in most places, just released their movie poster for the film.

The film stars Nicolas Cage, and is about a crime protection program called Scared Straight. The governor’s delinquent son gets sent to the program for a short period of time to teach him a lesson. While behind bars, however, the kid is taken hostage during a riot, forcing a lifer (Cage) to come to his aid.

The film is expected to be released in 2009. Sounds like it has a lot of promise!
