Nicolas Cage Will Fight Surfers In His Next Action Movie

Nicolas Cage is set to star in The Surfer to play a man who fights for his right to use the beach in his hometown in Australia.

Cage has built a reputation for his versatility, taking on diverse roles across various genres such as action, drama, comedy, and horror. His talent has earned him prestigious awards, including an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award, with numerous nominations to his name.

Known for his willingness to tackle both big-budget films, independent productions and direct-to-video films, Cage’s acting style often leans towards the eccentric and larger-than-life. This distinctive approach has garnered him a dedicated fan base and a cult following. This influence even led to the creation of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, a fictional adventure film where Cage played a fictionalised version of himself.

Recently, Cage starred as Dracula in the film Renfield and made an appearance as a cowboy in The Old Way. His continuous exploration of diverse roles continues to captivate audiences and keep his presence in the industry dynamic.

With that said, we’re always curious about what next new film he plans to star in.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Renfield actor Nicolas Cage will be starring in a film where he will be fighting local gang surfers in The Surfer.

The film is being produced by Robert Connolly from Arenamedia, along with Leonora Darby, James Harris, and Mark Lane from Tea Shop Productions. Nathan Klingher is also a producer, while Apur Parikh, Josh Harris, Ford Corbett, and Mark Fasano from Gramercy Park Media serve as executive producers. Michael Rothstein and Sam Hall are executive producing for Mossbank.

Arenamedia, the production company behind notable films like The Dry, Emily, and Sweet As, is involved in the production of the film. Tea Shop Productions, known for their works such as Fall, He Went That Way, Bull, A Banquet, and their upcoming projects The Wasp, The Cut, and Tornado, are also part of the production team. Mossbank, recognized for films like Ronald Emmerich’s Moonfall, Laika’s Missing Link, and Neil Burger’s Voyagers, is also involved in the project.

Mossbank’s Sam Hall said:

We’re incredibly excited to be working with Lorcan, Thomas, Arenamedia and Tea Shop on such a visceral and unique thriller. Nicolas Cage is the perfect actor for this iconic role and will undoubtedly deliver a tour de force performance which is sure to be something very special and will captivate audiences worldwide.

In The Surfer, Nicolas Cage plays a man who comes back to his Australian hometown by the beach after living in the U.S. for many years. He gets humiliated in front of his teenage son by a local gang of surfers who think they own the beach. Upset by this, he decides to stay and fight against them. But as the conflict gets worse, things go out of control, and he starts losing his sanity.

The film is set to start filming in September 2023 in Australia.

Nicolas Cage’s film choices have raised questions among people, leading them to wonder if he selects his projects carefully or simply accepts any opportunity that comes his way. At one point, he became the subject of jokes and memes.

Cage has openly admitted that he took on multiple films to help pay off his debts. His financial troubles began in the early 2000s when he made a series of extravagant purchases, including multiple homes, two castles, an island, and unusual items like a pet octopus and the first Superman comic book. However, these purchases were not the sole cause of his financial issues. The economic downturn in 2008, along with tax problems and mismanagement of funds, further contributed to his financial struggles.

Currently, Cage is experiencing a resurgence in his career. He claims to have resolved his debt situation and now has the freedom to choose his projects. His 2021 film Pig, written and directed by Michael Sarnoski, had multiple nominations and won awards. Cage even won a Razzie Redeemer award for it. As a result, there is curiosity about the upcoming projects he will be involved in.

We do look forward to Nicolas Cage tackling the role of fighting off bully surfers in The Surfers. I’m curious about what kind of psychological insanity he will go through.
