Nicolas Cage is in the “final stages of negotiations” about participating in the film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (The Unbearable Weight of Great Talent), reports The Hollywood Reporter. Especially the film is that in it the actor has to play himself.
According to the script, Nicolas Cage desperately wants to get a role in Quentin Tarantino’s new project (in reality, the actor also announced his desire to work with the director). At the same time, there is a version of Nicholas Cage from the 1990s that accuses modern Nicholas Cage of having buried his career by participating in a large number of “crap” films.
Also, the film version of Cage is in debt, and therefore he goes on the birthday of the Mexican billionaire who is fan of it. Later he will contact the CIA and tell the CIA that the Mexican is the head of the drug cartel, so the actor needs to become an undercover agent.
The script contains many references to Cage’s past. The illegibility of an actor in films, for example, has become a kind of meme. Since 2005, he was nominated five times for Golden Raspberry for the worst male role – a record number. On the Rotten Tomatoes website, many of his films received only 0% to 20% of critics’ positive reviews. But in 2018, much changed the movie “Mandy” with the participation of Cage.
