So it makes sense the eclectic actor is in talks to play a version of himself in the upcoming movie Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. But, in a "National Treasure"-like twist, the Central Intelligence Agency informs Cage that the billionaire is a drug kingpin, and they'd like Cage's help trying to bust him". 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 risky situation.
To be called "The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent", The Hollywood Reporter said Friday that the film will pay homage to the likes of "Leaving Las Vegas", "Face/Off" and "Gone in 60 Seconds". In other words, Nicolas Cage is absolutely doing this movie, it's just a matter of when: as we recently learned, he's got the bonkers-sounding Wally's Wonderland on deck, and that's shooting in January. Gormican, who created the Fox comedy series Ghosted, which Etten executive produced, would direct. Cage's other upcoming projects include the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation The Color Out of Space, opening January 24.
Kevin Turen will produce, along with Cage and Mike Nilon via their Saturn Films. It simply does not get more Nicolas Cage than this.
