The last and final question of the universe is not whether we live in a simulation, or the answer to the meaning of life, but whether or not Nicolas Cage is a good actor.
Theorists, scholars, philosophers, people bored in work, and countless others have long pondered this question and arrived at no concrete conclusion. For every 'Leaving Las Vegas', 'Moonstruck' or 'Mandy', there's a 'Left Behind', 'USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage', or 'Season of the Witch' to nullify it.
And so the question rages on, further confounding movie fans across the world. As if to add to that, there's now a new movie which will further add to this confusion - is Nicolas Cage aware of all of this, and if so, why is he making a movie where he plays himself?
'The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent', which is actually the name of the movie where Nicolas Cage plays himself, has now been slated March 19th, 2021 with a wide release plan being worked up by Lionsgate. Per Deadline, the synopsis reads as follows: "Creatively unfulfilled and facing financial ruin, the fictionalized version of Cage must accept a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a super fan. 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."
Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
It's fair to say though that Nicolas Cage, at least in the last two years, has really had a turnabout in his career. After 'Mandy' became a critical darling and gained a cult following, he turned in some excellent performances in the likes of 'Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse' and 'Color Out Of Space', but was still racking up leading roles in crappy straight-to-VOD action movies along the way.
In short, the chaos of Nicolas Cage's filmography continues to elude reason and 'The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent' is likely to only confound people further - and we can't wait to see it.
