Creatively unfulfilled and facing financial ruin, a fictionalized version of Nicholas 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: Nick Cage.
The movie was directed by Tom Gormican, who co-wrote the screenplay with Kevin Etten. The cast includes Sharon Horgan, Alessandra Mastronardi, Lily Sheen, Ike Barinholtz and Jacob Scipio, with Neil Patrick Harris and Tiffany Haddish.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent opens in theaters on April 22nd!
