Cage passes on Hornet

09.09.2009

Cae's big bird head

I'm glad for Nic Cage if he starts choosing his roles a little more carefully (he actually looks good in KICK ASS), but he's still trying to churn out 2 or 3 a year as if his career is in jeopardy (is it?...), so seeing him off a big project itself already shaky isn't necessarily a bad thing.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cage won't be part of THE GREEN HORNET as villain Mr.X. Not that he's off it, since he never actually signed on; he was simply in final negotiations, and he elected to concentrate on THE HUNGRY RABBIT JUMPS whose title alone makes me interested. Then he's got DRIVE ANGRY (in 3D...) , and God knows how many others within a 12-month period... Just stay away from Marvel, Nic. 'kay?

No news yet on who's being sought to play the non-Cage part in HORNET, but things aren't alarming yet even though the film is already in production. The part of Mr. X seemingly isn't a large one, even if pivotal. Maybe it's a chance to either boost anticipation for the film by getting a big name, or boost quality by getting a good one. Top of my head, I say Pat Swayze.

Extra Tidbit: "The Nic Cage Show" was probably the only funny part of Aaron Sorkin's short-lived "Studio 60".

Studio 60 was amazing, damn it

Studio 60 was an amazing show. Extremely intelligent, hilarious, and dramatic. I don't even remember "The Nic Cage Show", but I do remember that the comedy skits within the show were rarely funny.

Too bad, it probably wouldve been cool with Nic.

I dont think Patrick Swayze is working right now because of the cancer.

I say Val Kilmer.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Maybe with some luck, this whole movie will be dropped!

Good!

I used to like Nic Cage a lot, but now, I'm just completely ambivalent- he's done enough comic stuff, including the villain in Kick Ass- get someone fresh in there- who HASN'T done a comic villain!

"..career..in jeopardy.." What career? Randomly signing onto films and simply acting like himself in every role? And it's not like Bill Murray acting like himself, because Bill Murray is actually interesting and funny. Eh, this came off bad. It's too fucking early in the morning. I really just stay away from Cage's movies, so I have no reason to complain. Off to work I go...

About the Extra Tidbit...

Aaron Sorkin's Studio 60 on th Sunset Strip was one of the BEST series of the past decade, and it's a shame it was cancelled after one season.
I think a lot of people didn't get it, because it was a bit more intellectual than most shows.

Sounds like this film just wasn't meant to be.

Wow. You know a movie has to be shitty when Nic "Elvis Claw" Cage passes it up. This is the guy who did Bangkok Dangerous just last year. Bangkok Dangerous. Even the title tries to warn you at how bad the movie actually is, yet he still agreed to star in it.

Nothing against Nic Cage, but thank god. He's an okay actor, but sometimes I wonder if he's just cursed or something. Any movie he gets involved with suddenly has a higher chance of being crappy than it did before.

Woah... They're using Mr. X as the villain?

That's awesome! In the comics Mr. X is one of the Hornet's main enemies. I didn't think they were going to use him though because all the press material keeps saying that they created an original villain for the film. If this info is true than I'm going to be stoked. Honestly I think it would've been really cool to see Cage play a mobster, but I'm sure Gondry won't have much trouble finding a replacement. My vote would go to Daniel Craig or Viggo Mortensen, either one would be awesome in the

My vote would go to Daniel Craig or Viggo Mortensen, either one would be awesome in the part and probably a lot less expensive than Cage.
