Nicolas Cage is easily one of our very favourite actors here at Small Screen, both for good reasons and bad ones. He just brings so much joy in so many different ways.
Personally, I think he’s one of the greatest and most underrated actors of our generation, but he just enjoys being in rather silly movies.
There’s a very special place for the National Treasure movies, and I love Face-Off, which I believe to be an action movie masterpiece.
Then there are the likes of Con Air, The Rock and Leaving Las Vegas. I even think he’s brilliant in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.
If you’re still not convinced, then you’ve got to watch Nicolas Cage put in the performance of a lifetime in 2018’s actual masterpiece, Mandy.
Simply put, it’s pure cinematic madness, genius and gold, and it’ll probably melt your mind.
Anyway, Nic Cage’s next few films seem to be pretty mad. He’s going to be starring in a movie called Pig, which sounds a bit like John Wick, only instead of a dog Cage is hunting down people who have kidnapped his prize truffle-hunting pig.
Just let Nicolas Cage go nuts in Wally’s Wonderland
He’s then going to star in a film called Primal, which will see Cage play a big game hunter who’s trapped on a boat full of wild animals who are then released by an assassin.
It does seem as though Cage is starring in a lot of movies involving animals. He’s obviously never heard the saying, never work with animals.
However, it’s his third movie which I’m particularly interested in seeing. It’s called Wally’s Wonderland, and it’ll see Cage trapped yet again, but this time it’s in a theme park with even animatronic characters who come to life and try to murder him.
Sounds like my kind of movie. It’ll be directed by Kevin Lewis (The Drop), and Deadline revealed that he’ll be working from a script by written by G.O. Parsons (Killer Sharks: The Attacks Of Black December).
Cage will play a janitor who is “forced to spend the night in a twisted amusement park where he is pulled into a living nightmare. As the threatening animatronic characters come to life, the janitor has to fight his way from one monster to another to survive until morning and get out of the park.”
I have a feeling that Wally’s Wonderland will be a must-see movie when it comes out.
