Nicholas Cage in talks to play himself in new movie

Now he's ready to return to Hollywood after performing in smaller films in the most meta way.

The film titled Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, is now underway for a final negotiation before being picked up by Lionsgate, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cage's character in the film struggles to land a Quentin Tarantino movie to revive his career. The question is, which one?

The movie is said to be a "homage" to Cage's career, including references to actual movies like Face/Off and Leaving Las Vegas.

Nicolas Cage is apparently in talks to star as a version of himself in a brand new movie called The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Things go south fast.

Throw in a separate plot in which he's trying to persuade a billionaire to produce his new movie - a billionaire who turns out to be a drug cartel kingpin under surveillance by the Central Intelligence Agency for kidnapping the daughter of a Mexican politician, with Cage then recruited to go undercover - and we have what's likely to be the best movie of all time. The situation spirals even more dramatically when the Mexican brings over Cage's daughter and his ex-wife for a reconciliation, and when their lives are on the line, Cage takes on the role of a lifetime.

Cage could (potentially, maybe.?) return to the National Treasure films and the role of Ben Gates - the treasure hunter and history obsessive who tracks down lost artifacts thought to be legendary.

The film is co-written by and directed by Tom Gorbican, who created Ghosted, a short-lived paranormal comedy series starring Adam Scott and Craig Robinson.

They assured him that the movie is made with love for Cage and is not meant to poke fun at him. Nicholas Cage has also been known to star in quite a lot of films in general, likely due to the fact that since 2007 he has owed the US Government over $6.2 million dollars in unpaid taxes. Surprisingly, the script is in high demand by many production studios.

Lionsgate has secured the deal to release it, reportedly winning a bidding war against HBO Max and Paramount.
