Nicolas Cage joins Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Oliver Stone's Snowden

Snowden Oliver Stone Nicolas Cage Joseph Gordon-Levitt Shailene Woodley

Oliver Stone has snagged one of his WORLD TRADE CENTER stars for his upcoming film about whistleblower Edward Snowden. Deadline is reporting that Nicolas Cage has been tapped to play a former U.S. intelligence official in SNOWDEN, joining previously cast actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt (as Snowden), Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Olyphant, Rhys Ifans and Joely Richardson.

Last week we learned SNOWDEN will hit theaters on Christmas Day 2015, which means the producers and filmmakers probably think the film will do quite well come awards season. While it certainly could win a few awards (especially with such an amazing cast), I haven't been that impressed with Oliver Stone's recent films. I know some people really liked Stone's SAVAGES, but I thought it was just OK, and his George W. Bush biopic bored me to tears. By the way, this is coming from someone who isn't a fan of the former president.

Although it may not sound like I'm not that high on SNOWDEN, I do want to see Oliver Stone's new movie, and I'm interested in seeing what the director will do with his take on the Edward Snowden story. Are you planning on checking out SNOWDEN later this year?

Now I'm interested

While Snowden fascinates me, Oliver Stone is not really who I want to see telling his story. And not because I don't like Oliver Stone. But the man can't help it sometimes. However, his star is at the top of his game, and to put Cage in a movie with Gordon-Levitt suggests to me a step up in quality for Nic, something I'm wholeheartedly in favor of.

This sounds like exactley what Cage needs for a comeback. I'm also really excited to see what he'll be doing in the film and how him and Stone will click. I have to say this movie might have the best cast of anything in 2015 already.

This could be his comeback film finally, I smell an Oscar nomination already. Always have been a fan of Cage even when he is in a crap movie.

It's nice to see Nicolas Cage back in a high profile movie once again. Please, Mr. Cage, stop going back to movies that will go directly to discount bin once they're released.

There is always a film every year that has a lot of star power and hype behind it that winds up failing both with critics and audiences a like. Stone has been on a cold streak lately, but let's hope this is a return to form for him and that Cage actually shows people why he is an Oscar winner. I like Cage.
