Lionsgate has dated the Nicholas Cage movie “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” for March 19,2021.
Tom Gormican is directing from a script he wrote with Kevin Etten. Cage will produce via his Saturn Films banner, alongside Mike Nilon and Kevin Turen.
Cage will play a version of himself as an actor who, in need of some money and creatively unfulfilled, begrudgingly accepts a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a Mexican billionaire super fan. When things take a wild turn, Cage is forced to live up to his own legend to extricate himself from an increasingly dangerous situation.
“The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” is the second film to land on March 21, 2021. United Artists’ “Tomb Raider 2,” starring Alicia Vikander, has also been set for the same slot.
