Synopsis: Nicolas Cage stars as… Nick Cage in the action-comedy “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.” Creatively unfulfilled and facing financial ruin, the fictionalized version of Cage must accept a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a dangerous superfan (Pedro Pascal). Things take a wildly unexpected turn when Cage is recruited by a CIA operative (Tiffany Haddish) and 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. With a career built for this very moment, the seminal award-winning actor must take on the role of a lifetime: Nicolas Cage.
The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent starring Nicolas Cage, Pedro Pascal (Wonder Woman 1984), Sharon Horgan (Together), Ike Barinholtz (The Hunt), Alessandra Mastronardi (Carla), Jacob Scipio (Bad Boys for Life), Lily Sheen (Underworld: Evolution), with Neil Patrick Harris (The Matrix Resurrections), and Tiffany Haddish (Nobody’s Fool) hits theaters on April 22, 2022.
Taking a page from Jean-Claude Van Damme (JCVD), Hollywood action star Nicolas Cage (Face/Off, Con Air) is set to play Nicolas Cage in a film about Nicolas Cage called The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent.
Written by Tom Gormican and Kevin Etten, with Gormican (That Awkward Moment) attached to also direct. The film follows Cage as he is “desperate to get a role in a new Tarantino movie while also dealing with a strained relationship with his teenage daughter. He also occasionally talks to an egotistical 1990s version of himself who rides him for making too many crappy movies and for not being a star anymore.”
