Pretty interesting article. Ever wonder why Nicolas Cage, the actor from the 90’s who made all these big budget movies that were big hits… like all the Bruckheimer films he made and the National Treasure films. All that stuff… well Nic here finally explains why he left that lifestyle.
Doing big budget movies must be overwhelming for him, I guess… plus he doesn’t get much freedom for his acting. You must play the “yes man” and do what the director says. Nic just didn’t enjoy that lifestyle, making the big budget blockbusters, ya know what I mean?
Well in indie movies, Nic gets a lot more freedom and he gets to say his lines however he wants to and now you know why Nic is a way better actor in the indie films.
Nic is clearly not into this for the fame at all ’cause he’s not too worried about being a big name. He doesn’t care about fame and money. He makes movies ’cause it’s his passion obviously.
Nic did the movie “Pig” ’cause the story reminded him about himself. I’m a huge Nic Cage fan and I can’t wait to see “Pig” myself and I’ll check it out. The last Nic Cage indie film I saw was “Willie’s Wonderland” on Hulu and it was freakin’ great, loved it. You should check it out too.
Nic quitting Hollywood to make indie films just makes me respect this dude even more.
