We were already excited for the upcoming film ‘The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent’ because it stars the legendary actor Nicolas Cage.
Not only does it star him, but he’s set to play an even crazier version of himself.
Tom Gormican, who co-wrote the script with Kevin Etten, is directing the pic, which follows a fictionalized, creatively unfulfilled Cage who, in the face of financial ruin, accepts a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a superfan (Pedro Pascal). When things take a wildly dangerous turn, Cage is forced to live up to his own legend, channeling his most iconic and beloved on-screen characters in order to save himself and his loved ones.
Sounds f**king great, right? Well, it’s going to sound even better because now we have learned that Tiffany Haddish has joined the project and will co-star opposite Cage.
Her character is described below…
Haddish will play eccentric rogue government agent Vivian, who, in a long-standing battle against one of the largest criminal organizations in Europe, forces Cage to go undercover in a crazy, off-book, last-ditch effort to bring them down for good.
This sounds like it has the potential to be a hilarious, action-packed film full of multiple Cage freakouts.
Filming is expected to begin sometime this fall, which means it could be released sometime in 2021. We’ll keep you posted.
