Tom Gormican directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with Kevin Etten and is produced by Cage, Mike Nilon, Kristin Burr, and Kevin Turen, with Samson Mucke and Kevin Etten working as executive producers. Alongside Cage, several Hollywood heavyweights star, including Pedro Pascal, Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffany Haddish and Ike Barinholtz.

“Creatively unfulfilled and facing financial ruin, the fictionalized version of Cage must accept a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a dangerous superfan,” reads the synopsis. “Things take a wildly unexpected turn when Cage is recruited by a CIA operative and forced to live up to his own legend, channelling 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: Nicolas Cage.”

From the preview, the movie will pay homage to some of Cage’s most iconic roles, such as Gone in 60 Seconds, Face-Off and Leaving Las Vegas.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent will arrive in theatres on April 21, 2022.
