Apparently, Nicholas Cage is set to star in a movie titled “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent”, where he plays himself… kinda?

He will be playing a fictional and egotistical version of himself from the 90’s who will bug his present-day self about making “too many crappy movies” and no longer being a big star.

His “character” is desperate for a role in a new Quentin Tarantino movie, has a strained relationship with his teenage daughter which he tries to fix through the course of the movie, he is in A LOT of debt, eventually gets recruited by the CIA, and, there will be plenty of references to some of his iconic films including “Face-Off” and “Gone in 60 Seconds”

By the sounds of it, there is A LOT going on in this movie!

Interest is so high in this movie that Nic will be getting paid almost as much as he was making for “National Treasure”…

It will be interesting to see if this movie actually comes to life.
