Nicolas Cage is known for his... interesting movie choices. And the bees.

But now it looks like he's joined a project tailor-made for him... after Noir Spider-man, that was perfect too.

That's right, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Lionsgate productions is in the final stage of picking up meta movie The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent which is set to feature Nicolas Cage playing one of the most iconic characters in Hollywood: Nicolas Cage. Should've guessed it from the film title honestly.

The film will feature Nicolas Cage as young 'egotistical' Nic from the 90's, a struggling actor burdened with debt, trying to make it by getting a role in a Quentin Tarantino film all the while dealing with a strained relationship with his daughter.

There will also be a story line of Nicolas Cage attending the birthday party of a Mexican billionaire who's a fan of his work but is also a drug cartel kingpin whom Cage must stop with the help of the CIA. We really hope that is based on real-life events.

The film, despite sounding jocular, is said to be an ode to the actor and his career by scriptwriter Tom Gormican, who is also set to direct the piece.

There is no release date The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent as of yet but we're genuinely waiting for more details.
