Nicolas Cage is reportedly in talks to play himself in a film about him trying to land a role in a new Quentin Tarantino movie.
The meta-sounding film, titled Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, is undergoing final negotiations to be picked up by Lionsgate, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It was written by Tom Gormican (That Awkward Moment) and Kevin Etten (Ghosted), with Gormican attached to direct.
In the film, Cage apparently talks to an egotistical Nineties version of himself, who mocks his future self for not being famous, as well as for making too many low-budget films.
Cage’s character is also trying to deal with a considerable level of debt, so he agrees to make an appearance at the birthday party of a Mexican drug cartel member (a fan), who wants Cage to see a film script he’s written.
During all this, Cage also has to try and keep his teenage daughter happy.
There is currently no indication as to whether other actors are being considered for the role of Nicolas Cage, other than Nicolas Cage himself.
