Yes, you heard that right. The actor is of course in the race for the role of Nicolas Cage.

Buzz around the project is now supposedly so loud that sources say Cage-whose Saturn Films would produce along with Waves producer Kevin Turin-could be looking at a payday to rival his National Treasure heights.

Though he regularly appears in a handful of films per year, his presence in Hollywood blockbusters waned after Marvel's Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance in 2011. The question is, which one?

Tesla to build first European factory in Germany
The company has an engineering firm in Pruem, Germany , that specialises in automated manufacturing systems for battery plants. Back in late 2016 Elon Musk said Brexit wasn't really an issue when it came to expanding into the United Kingdom and Europe.

Called The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, details of the plot were unveiled by The Hollywood Reporter over the weekend.

The movie as a whole draws inspiration from a number of Cage's works such as Face/Off, Leaving Las Vegas, and Gone in 60 Seconds. Things go south fast.

The film, despite sounding jocular, is said to be an ode to the actor and his career by scriptwriter Tom Gormican, who is also set to direct the piece.

"While he bonds with the man, Cage is informed by the CIA that the billionaire is actually a drug cartel kingpin who has kidnapped the daughter of a Mexican presidential nominee and is recruited by the USA government to get intelligence", THR explains of the plot.

After seeking out his help, Cage will find himself going undercover for the CIA to gather intelligence about the drug lord who has kidnapped the daughter of an elite Mexican politician. The situation spirals even more dramatically when the Mexican brings over Cage's daughter and his ex-wife for a reconciliation, and when their lives are on the line, Cage takes on the role of a lifetime. The writers assured him that the film wasn't poking fun at him but rather paying respect to him. Nicholas Cage has also been known to star in quite a lot of films in general, likely due to the fact that since 2007 he has owed the US Government over $6.2 million dollars in unpaid taxes.

Lionsgate has secured the deal to release it, reportedly winning a bidding war against HBO Max and Paramount.
