You think you’ve seen Nicolas Cage? Think again. He’s only been a vision up till now. A faint specter passing through the night. But soon the real Nic Cage will explode into a million glowing pieces all over the screen! I’m obviously talking about the actor’s forthcoming magnum opus, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
According to THR, Lionsgate has slated the film for release on March 19, 2021. The studio is said to have outbid a number of suitors for the rights to the film.
The outlet breaks down the story:
“Cage will star as actor Nicolas Cage. This version of Cage wants to land a role in a new Quentin Tarantino movie, and must also deal with a strained relationship with his teenage daughter. Cage finds himself under a mountain of debt, and makes a paid appearance at a Mexican billionaire’s birthday party. After bonding with the man, the CIA informs the actor the billionaire is actually a drug cartel kingpin who has kidnapped the daughter of a Mexican presidential nominee. Cage ends up working with the U.S. government to get intelligence.”
Tom Gormican and Kevin Etten wrote the script, with Gormican attached to direct. Kevin Turen is producing.
