Nic Cage Discusses ‘Kick-Ass’, ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ and Other Future Projects

The actor discusses the films coming up on his slate.

Nic Cage may be one of the hardest working comic-book fans in Hollywood, and he currently has a whole slew of projects in various stages of development, including Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of Mark Millar's comic Kick-Ass. Cage talked to Collider about all of his upcoming projects, and had a few words to say about Kick-Ass.

"Well, that movie was quite a satire in my opinion," Cage said. "That's an example of sort of the irony of the obsession of violence in the U.S., but truly all over. I think it's sort of an ironic take on that. So there will be some violent images, but it's done in a way that I think shows you the absurdity of it. He was easy. He was easy to work for. Again, I felt safe with Matthew. I felt like I could express myself again, like I did with Alex. So I've had some good luck so far working with filmmakers that I connected with."

Cage also said that he's looking forward to beginning filming with Jay Baruchel on The Sorcerer's Apprentice, in which cage will play the Sorcerer while Baruchel takes on the role of the apprentice. "We're going to have some laughs," Cage said of his co-star. "I can already feel it."

Cage also said that a third National Treasure movie was not out of the question, but would have to wait until filming finished on The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

If that wasn't enough on Cage's plate, he also said that he has two other films coming out soon - The Bad Lieutenant and Season of the Witch, as well as two animated features.

    He's one of the few actors today who can get away with playing the same person in each film, like John Wayne or Cary Grant. You ought to play something that requires change of voice, Nic. :P

    I have to admit though, he knows how to get high-profile roles.

    oh just to clarify, i don't think he is a terrible actor or anything, i just think he is pickin his roles and they rn't good for him. i mean he basically got Ghost Rider made so that he could be in it.

    oh and i agree Con Air was the sh*t.

    i really wish he wasn't famous to the point where he can pick wut role he wants for w/e movie, cuz there is no way he should be in Kick-Ass, or at least not in the role he is in. and to date, his character has only been in like two scenes of the comic and hasn't even fought anyone, but u know he is gunna do alot more for the movie, which will make it suck.

    like everyone is saying, all he has goin for him is Nation Treasure, and as for ghost rider they should just reboot it and get rid of Cage.

    Nick Cage is barely hanging on... his last handful of movies have been a joke. And what's up with his hair? It looks like someone shot a squirrel and stuck it on his head. Nick Cage was great back when his one-dimensional acting fit into a couple good scripts. Now it's old and tiresome. The only thing he has going for him is the National Treasure franchise, though #2 was no where near as good as the first.

    What about ghost rider 2?

    Yeah, but at least Sammy has some good sounding movie line ups. Iron Man 2, Inglorious Bastards, and the Nick Fury movie.

    He's also suppose to be doing Ghostrider 2..."Knowing" looks good to me, but, he does seem to be suffering from the "Samuel Jackson Syndrome:" in a race with himself to appear in as many movies as physically possible.

    Bad Lieutenant and Season of the Witch are the only two things i'm looking forward to, you can take the rest of that and just throw it in the trash. I really think Cage is a great actor but he's suffering from a disease of picking bad films. I think Knowing will flop in theaters. It just doesn't look all that great. Why can't this guy go back to picking good sh*t like Con Air and Face Off. I wouldn't be surprised if he would sign up to do six more National Treasures.
