‘Girls Trip’ star Tiffany Haddish is set to star opposite Nicolas Cage, Pedro Pascal and Sharon Horgan in Tom Gormican’s adventure comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
Written by Tom Gormican and Kevin Etten, who is also directing, the highly anticipated film follows Cage as a fictional version of himself: A fictionalized, creatively unfulfilled Cage who, in the face of financial ruin, accepts a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a superfan (Pascal). When things take a wildly dangerous turn, Cage is 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, Deadline reports.
Production is expected to take place this fall. Producers are Kevin Turen, Kristin Burr and Mike Nilon, with James Myers and Brady Fujikawa overseeing for Lionsgate, the site reports.
