The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

Comedy Action


Nicholas Cage is co-opted by the CIA to outwit a drug lord and must step up to be a version of his iconic movie persona.

The protagonist reluctantly showcases his talent as a man swept up into circumstances beyond his imagining. He draws support from his alter-ego who manifests to encourage him as an action hero. The exploration of the connection between movie fans and the actor is second to the character's own circumstances, needing to reconcile the man with his image. "The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent" is action-packed, witty, clever, and brims with the necessary elements for a first-class buddy movie. Massive aggressive.
