Nicholas Cage to star as Nicholas Cage in a new movie about… Nicholas Cage

November 17th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Just because there’s not quite enough crazy in the world, Nicholas Cage has decided he has to bring you the peek amount of his brand of crazy.

The star is on the verge of making a new movie with Lionsgate called The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent with Tom Gormican directing.

Here’s the description:

Cage will play a version of himself as an actor who, in need of some money and creatively unfulfilled, begrudgingly accepts a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a Mexican billionaire super fan. When things take a wild turn, Cage is forced to become a version of some of his most iconic and beloved characters in order to extricate himself from an increasingly dangerous situation.

Sounds like a cross between Being John Malkovich and The Game. Whatever it turns out to be, we’re there first night!

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
