Nicolas Cage will star in Dream Scenario | Entertainment News
Nicolas Cage will star in “Dream Scenario”.
The ‘Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ actor has signed on to appear in the upcoming comedy, which will be directed by ‘Sick of Myself’ filmmaker Kristoffer Borgli, reports Deadline.
The director will also write the screenplay, while Ari Aster and Lars Knudsen will produce under their Square Peg banner alongside A24 – who are also financing the film – Jacon Jaffke and Tyler Camellone.
In addition to being described as a comedy, plot details of the film are being kept under wraps.
Meanwhile, after playing a version of himself in ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ and Dracula in the upcoming ‘Renfield’, Nicolas recently admitted he was ‘excited’ to be offered more comedy roles recently.
However, the 58-year-old actor is also keen to spread his wings and would jump at the chance to star in a musical.
He said: “Right now, I’m thrilled that comedy is back on the menu. It hasn’t been there for, my god, 15 years. It’s good that maybe I have the opportunity to do more comedy.
“But I’ve never done a musical. It would be something I would be interested in.”
However, the “Con Air” star primarily wants to continue doing indie dramas.
He added: “I just want to continue on the roots of indie drama. That’s my real passion, movies like ‘Pig’ or ‘Leaving Las Vegas’ or ‘Joe’. ‘Bringing Out the Dead’ – I love it. I’ve seen recently. I have to say it might be the best movie I’ve ever done.”
But the “Moonstruck” star’s dream role is Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo.
He said: “I would love to play Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo because of the character’s love for the ocean, I share that with him.”
