Nicolas Cage will play a version of himself

Nicolas Cage is to play himself in a film called The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.

According to Deadline, Lionsgate is in final negotiations to land the movie, a film project scripted by Tom Gormican (Ghosted) & Kevin Etten (Ghosted, Workaholics).

The film tells the story of Nicolas Cage (Cage), who, in need of some money and creatively unfulfilled, begrudgingly accepts a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a Mexican billionaire super fan. When things take a wild turn, Nick is forced to become a version of some of his most iconic and beloved characters in order to extricate himself from an increasingly dangerous situation, reports the magazine.
