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 film also stars Sharon Horgan, Ike Barinholtz, Alessandra Mastronardi, Jacob Scipio, Lily Sheen, and Neil Patrick Harris. It is written by Tom Gormican and Kevin Etten, and the producers are Nicolas Cage, Mike Nilon, Kristin Burr, and Kevin Turen.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, directed by Tom Gormican, arrives in theaters on April 22, 2022.
