Ahead of its world premiere at SXSW, Lionsgate has dropped the official trailer for THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT. Make sure you check it out below and embrace the full might that is Nicolas Cage.
Nicolas Cage stars as… Nick Cage in this latest action comedy. 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 (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 film stars Nicolas Cage (Pig, Mandy), Pedro Pascal (Wonder Woman 1984, “Game of Thrones”), Sharon Horgan (Military Wives, Dating Amber), Ike Barinholtz (The Hunt, “The Mindy Project”), Alessandra Mastronardi (“Titanic: Blood and Steel,” To Rome With Love), Jacob Scipio (Bad Boys For Life, The Outpost), Lily Sheen (Underworld: Evolution, Click), with Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother,” Gone Girl), and Tiffany Haddish (Bad Trip, Here Today).
THE UNBEARABLE WEIGHT OF MASSIVE TALENT is directed by Tom Gormican (That Awkward Moment, “Ghosted”). The screenplay is written by Gormican and Kevin Etten (“Workaholics,” “Desperate Housewives”).
It is produced by Nicolas Cage, Mike Nilon, Kristin Burr p.g.a., and Kevin Turen.
