Nicolas Cage wants to star in a musical and, quite Frankly, who would want to stand in the way of that happening?
The 58-year-old actor’s latest flick, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, inside him play a fictionalized version of himself in the new meta-action, Comedy blockbuster, but he’s revealed he’s ‘curious’ to venture into the musical world.
In a new interview, Cage said: ‘Right now, I’m excited that the Comedy is back on the menu. It hasn’t been there for, gosh, 15 years. That’s nice that I may have the opportunity to do more Comedy. ‘
He has previously delighted fans in comedies including Raising Arizona, Moonstruck and Kick-Ass, as well as just being himself.
However, considering the Resurgence in movie Musicals after recent hit Releases including Steven Spielberg’s take on the West Side Story and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tick, tick… BOOM! with Andrew Garfield, the star is keen to venture into that sphere.
‘But I’ve never done a musical. That would be something that I would be curious about, ‘he added to Rolling Stone.
Mostly though, the well-known Elvis Presley fan is keen to keep making independent films, after a run of positive reviews.
He continued: ‘I just want to continue on the roots of the indie drama. That’s my true passion, movies like Pig or Leaving Las Vegas or Joe.
‘Bringing Out the Dead – I saw that recently. I have to say that might be the best movie I ever made. ‘
Meanwhile, Cage, who recently delighted fans when photos of him in his full Dracula costume leaked online from the set of the new Universal movie Renfield, Revealed his dream role is Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo.
The Oscar Winner fancies taking on the character because of their shared ‘love of the ocean’.
Taking part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) recently, he also shared that he is unbothered by people shouting memorable lines at him from his Films in public.
‘I don’t have a problem with any of the Quotes, I’m glad they remember the movie.’
As we can all be Grateful for, Cage also said that he would be down for Face / Off 2, so who’s telling John Travolta and when can we make this happen?
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is released in UK Cinemas on April 22.
