Nicolas Cage is Nicolas Cage in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent trailer

Nicolas Cage’s enormous tax burden and financial debts are finally making it to the screen as more than just him doing another straight-to-video action-thriller to pay those off. Have a look with the red-band trailer for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.

Cage stars as a fictionalized version of himself that owes $600k for his extended stay at West Hollywood’s Sunset Tower Hotel. You wouldn’t think that would be such a big deal for a guy who’s made almost 50 movies in the last decade alone, but again, this is a fictionalized Cage—so he takes a million-dollar payout to attend the party of drug lord Pedro Pascal. CIA operative Tiffany Haddish then recruits Cage to work for her, leading the star into his first “real-life” action movie. Ghosts of Ghost Riders Past and Future also apparently make appearances as younger and elderly Cages.

Anyway, this comes from Tom Gormican, the writer-director whose only prior film is the dismally-received frat-bros-become-frat-men rom-com That Awkward Moment. Cage himself has said he refuses to watch the film because of the falsely “neurotic, high-strung, anxiety-ridden” performance the director made him give as “himself.” But if you want to check it out, it hits theaters April 22.
