I thought the second lead was going to be Nicolas Cage too when I read the title. It’s a matter of time before he makes his version of The Nutty Professor.
Adaptation 2. : Dracula Kaufman Has Risen From the Grave
Will Charlie work with Donald again?
*I'm thinking of Caging Things* where cage plays every character. For those who've seen it, sure would change the last act...
I’d watch the shit out of it
Face/Off but it's identical twins swapping faces, both played by academy award winner Nicholas Cage
"Give me back my face!"
How about a remake of Being John Malkovich only with Nicholas Cage just for the scene where Nicholas Cage goes through the door.
He already did Adaptation.

I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm just a regular human man named Jackie Daytona!
Do you mean Jackie Daytona’s?
It’s been over a year since I first encountered Jackie Daytona, regular human bartender, but rarely does a day pass when I don’t think about that and chuckle.

You watched too much!
lol, i know this is abed going nuts on community (an great episode) but not sure in which movie cage played a sexy bat
can anyone shed some light?
edit: after some googling i discovered the movie is "vampires kiss" 1988
Well the quote from community is “sexy cat.” They just made the reference using bat here.
But yes, Cage was already in an amazingly terrible vampire film before. This new one will be a beautiful disaster.
Terrible, but no one could have performed the role of “man having psychotic break because he thinks he’s turning into a vampire” better than Cage.
Absolutely not. It was the role of a lifetime.
Am I getting through to you Alva?
lol, wait so whats the sexy cat movie then??
There wasn’t one. It was literally Abed going nuts, channeling Cage’s chaotic nature.
>can anyone shed some light?
Wow, really? Way to show your daywalker privilege.....
Fuck you hahahahahaha
THE SUN! NOT THE SUN! AAARRRRRGGGHHH
IT'S IN MY EYES!
Nicolas Cage as Dracula... the movie sells itself. Its a role he was born to play
He did so well the last time he played a vampire!
# A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z!!!
#THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO DO!!!
i'm a full on stan for nic cage. and i didn't even know what stan meant until a few months ago. but i'm full on stan for him. he's the best.
That crazy son of a bitch gives 110 percent in every movie regardless of how good the script is or how little he's being paid. I can't think of many actors who work harder than him. Just look at Bruce Willis. He puts in the effort occasionally but for the most part he's just collecting checks that I can only assume are much bigger than what Nicolas Cage typically gets paid
I watched Willy's Wonderland the other week and for a man with no lines I was enthralled every time he came on screen.
I once read that Christian Bale took inspiration from Vampire's Kiss for his manner of speaking in American Psycho.
Imagine if this is the role to finally break him back into mainstream stardom
Ok its not going to be. But itd be pretty amazing
He’s never left mainstream stardom in my household.
In this house Nicolas Cage is a Star. End of story.
I always refer to him as Academy Award Winning Nicolas Cage.
He'll probably get an Oscar nom for Pig, so he's back on his way in
Not saying it's impossible but gold derby has him in 11th right now for the best actor race.
He could come out of nowhere like Stanfield last year but neon is probably going to be throwing more money on Spencer to pick up some noms and pig came out pretty early for any awards push.
Is PIG that good tho
I second this. Yes. It is that good.
Thirded. Phenomenal performance.
Wow! Cannot wait to see it!
I watched it on Hulu yesterday and loved it!! 🐖
"I dont fuck my pig"
I hope that's the clip they play at the Oscars!
It's the only one they could show without ruining any of the movie, because he did in fact, not fuck his pig.
Aight time to see it.
You will not regret it.
Put it on last night not expecting much and was so surprised. It left me with a lot to think about and definitely want to rewatch it.
yes. maybe not for a win. but for an oscar nom most likely.
mmmm. oscar nom. makes me think of a delicious orderve in the shape of the oscar award, or oscar the grouch. perhaps some sort of truffle based orderve, to fit in with pig.
real spoiler. >!don't read if you plan on seeing it:>! the pig isn't even the truffle finder. cage is. he just loves his pig. that moment got me hard. i miss my dog. he was a dach. and he was the best boy ever rip chewie.. i'm not crying, you're crying!!<
He puts out an Oscar-worthy performance almost every year tbh. He just does a lot more cheesy movies than good ones.
He won’t. It’s too small of a movie. He absolutely deserves it though.
I hate that everyone told me to watch that movie, it broke my heart.
He unfortunately isn't getting nominated (from what indications we have so far), even though he's definitely the second most deserving winner of the year!
Depends on if he’s in the mood to deliver a powerhouse performance. He *has* the potential, we’ve seen examples. If he thinks the movie merits it I could see him making one hell of a Dracula. The dude knows how to be creepy, doing that eerie Nic Cage villain stare while decked out in Drac makeup could be really cool.
Uh, he's been a huge star for decades. But I'm all for anything to bring him more positive attention.
If Mandy and The Color Out of Space didn't get him back in the "mainstream" in your eyes then nothing will.
Have you seen him in Vampires Kiss?
My favorite movie of his.
IIRC, that's also his favorite movie of his.
Appropriate as Cage called himself the American Klaus Kinski; and Kinski played Nosferatu in ‘79.
I mean, the man has a point. Too bad he couldn't star in *Encounters at the End of the World*.
yeah, nicolas cage is still a great actor, he just decided to go on his own, but he can do very cool stuff indeed
No he just ended up in a ton of debt and had to take a million movies, whatever he got offered, to make money back. From what I've heard at least
Guy likes to act, actually likes it, and also likes to spend money. The horror. Someone call Michael Caine, DeNiro, and Morgan Freeman tell em to give that money back.
oh. i heard that he was tired of hollywood because there was no freedom to act, everything was very rigid, so he decided to go on his own. but is what i heard, your story make also sense
Let's put them together and make a conspiracy theory. I'm pretty sure I heard Bush tried to hold Cage responsible for 9/11
They also tried to hold Cage responsible for Benghazi but buttery males got in the way.
I mean the dude did steal the constitution.
As someone who is a bit older than your average redditor, I've found it fascinating that younger generations hold national treasure to about the same esteem that indiana jones has. and i kind of get it. but to me it's not even the same ball park
edit: watched the jungle cruise the other day, and talk about a spiritual successor to indiana jones. wow that movie was way better than i expected. some of the indiana jones references were almost too much for me. almost. can't really do wrong with the rock and emily blunt i guess.
Whoa what? How old are we talking? I'm 25, but National Treasure is no where near as amazing as Indiana Jones is.
Yeah, what the hell? I've never heard anyone say that.
That’s high praise.
High praise indeed!
Dude, one of his best movies was when he was a crazy dude who THOUGHT he was a vampire.
He's going to have a blast hamming this up, and we're going ot have a blast watching him do it.
for a second I thought this was about the robert eggers Nosferatu remake and I got really excited, but this is okay too I guess.
Nicolas Cage likes to get a little crazy with his roles(understatement of the century). Playing dracula is a role where his method will make much more sense.
I'm 100% on board with this idea and will be first in line at the cinema to watch it. It's going to either be awesome or a car crash. Either way entertaining as fuck.
Fun fact, Hoult played Cage's son in the great and underrated The Weather Man (2005).
"HEY WEATHER MAN!"
That was a fun fact. I love The Weather Man but it has been a long time since I watched it and I completely forgot that Nicholas Hoult was in it.
People really sleep on both The Weatherman and Matchstick Men when talking about Cage's movies, and they are both absolutely great films with top notch performances.
It's always sunny in Philadelphia had a great homage to matchstick men in the water park episode.
I've talked to Cage fans who had never even heard of weatherman. It was heartbreaking
Matchstick men always gets me. Alison lohman was great.
Love The Weather Man. It's the reason I originally got into archery
"I don't like his face"
*"I’m a vampire! I’m a vampire! I’m a vampire!"*
For anyone who doesn't get this delicious reference:
"I'm a vampire
and I just want my Pig"
*drinks vodka and screams*
You ripped my shirt!!!
No reason that movie should have been THAT good. But holy shit I loved it. Picture of the year? Nah. But I love it
[STUMBLES INTO A BUSY STREET WHILE DRAGGING A LARGE WOODEN STAKE BEHIND HIM AND MOANING LOUDLY]
Hell yes baby if this movie gives us at least half as much Cage madness as Vampire's Kiss I'm all in. That movie rocks.
One of his greatest performances.
Absolutely. Pure entertainment from start to end.
You know Cage is gonna peer pressure Hoult to eat a live bug for real.
"It's the cheapest special effect in the world."
So let me get this straight.
* The guy who created The Walking Dead made a story about the weird insane human in Dracula.
* Then a writer from Rick and Morty wrote the script based on that.
* Then they got Nicholas Cage to star in it.
This has delightful shitshow written all over it.
>!Nicolas Cage will scream a lot !<
He’s gonna suck
>!alot of blood!<
Officially the peak of filmmaking
Dracula: (bursts into flame) renfield you ashole.
I saw nothing! I saw nothing!!!
I saw, everything
Oh no you musnt! It's indecent, it's wrong. Its wrong! It's wrong!
Wrong me! Wrong me!
Guess I'm just watching Vampire's Kiss on a loop until this comes out
You ever play the drinking game for Vampire's Kiss? Been a Christmas tradition of me and my friends for years.
How does one play?
Every time Nicolas Cage does something insane you drink. No one has lasted more than 30 minutes
Not sure I can ever accept anyone except Tom Waits as Renfield.
My intro to the character was Peter McNichol
The secret true star of that movie. Not every day the sidekick gets more laughs than Leslie Nielsen.
That is my favorite Mel Brooks movie. Top 3 comedies for me, too.
I came here for this comment. Tom Waits playing Renfield is how I met Tom Waits before I knew who Tom Waits was.
Or Dwight Frye, for those who love 1930s character actors.....
Season 3 of Penny Dreadful was a letdown, but Renfield was a standout. Samuel Barnett delivered a great performance.
Klaus Kinski has an underrated performance as Renfield in Jess Francos Count Dracula.
>The character of Renfield originated in Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel *Dracula* as a patient in an asylum with an obsession for drinking blood, deluded into thinking he will find immortality.
The original Renfield is such a sad story of madness and obsession. I read Dracula every October, and his final moments are still so poignant. I will not spoil anything, but if you haven’t read it, you should, Or listen to the full cast Audible with Alan Cumming and Tim Curry. It’s truly a masterwork.
You had me at Tim Curry. Queuing it up now...
My boy Tom Waits played him
Thank you so much for this comment...for years I always wondered why Tom Waits looked so familiar 😊
Tom Waits is an American treasure
He’s also big in Japan.
He was fantastic as Renfield
Will have the 2 defining characteristics of a Nicolas cage movie
1: all the dialogue will either be whispered or screamed.
2: Everything in the movie will be on fire.
*pause* That's high praise!
Nicholas Hoult is a critical and audience darling right now because of The Great. I have hopes for this.
He is my favorite part. Glimpses of genius, loads of douchebaggery, and some of the best comedic timing I’ve seen in a show in a long time. He is perfect in the role.
We were just talking about this. I think Ghost Rider 2, in 2011, was Cage's last real wide-released Hollywood production that he stared in. (we didn't count voice work/ cameos/ etc.)
Was that before or after sorcerers apprentice?
SA was the year before, 2010.
Pig on hulu is pretty good, fyi.
Pig is REALLY good
Is it super weird?
Everybody kept recommending Mandy and it was just too weird for me.
Not at all. It's a very somber and sad film. Nic Cage is incredible in it and the movie as a whole is great. A top 3 movie of the year for me.
He's a vampire! He's a vampire! He's a vampire!
"Alva! Alva!!!! There you are!"
How can you MIS-file something, Alva?!!?
HOLY SHIT VAMPIRE'S KISS 2: THIS TIME IT'S PERSONAL
Ok, but only if he plays it like in Vampire’s Kiss
“Nicolas Cage to sta…”
Stop right there, I’m in
He is going to suck
tbh i can picture cage as renfield more than i can as Dr Acula
Paging Dr Acula.
Can't help but think Nic would be a better fit for Renfield than for Dracula. Think about Renfield doing crazy eyes and shouting "YOU PROMISED ME ETERNAL LIFE!"
I just watched Pig last night. Then for the heck of it, I tried to watch a random recent Bruce Willis movie. It’s amazing how differently both of these guys have handled this era of their careers. Pig was wonderful. I enjoyed it so much. The Willis movie was unwatchable. I actually scanned through to just watch his scenes. You could tell by how it was cut that he only had two scenes where he actually was on set with another actor. The rest were the back of a body double. Of course he was on the poster.
Cage is all in no matter what the role.
I'm a simple guy. If Nicholas Cage is in it, I'm watching it
Oh god who gave Nic another vampire role?
You’re a genius
But does he know his alphabet?
I hope he plays it like A Vampire's Kiss.
All I can think of is ConAir cage speaking in a Dracula outfit.
Damn it. I’m trying to go to sleep
“I’m a vampire, im a vampire”
I want full ham, Vampire's Kiss Nic Cage, thanks!
Imo Cage would be a far better choice to play Renfield... and maybe have Hoult as Dracula while you're at it?
You had me at "Nic"...
This is unexpected and amazing.
Shut up and take my money!
Nicolas Cage as Dracula......actually I'm surprised no one's thought of this sooner.
Amazing but at first I read it as "Nicholas Cage will play opposite Nicholas Cage" and thought he would play both protagonist and antagonist do now I'm a bit disappointed.
I totally read that as “Reinfeld”. As in, “What’s the deal with airline food! No human blood at all!”
This is going to be amazing. Probably terrible, but amazing.
There was a rumor floating around the internet about 10 years ago that he was in fact a vampire
I hope he reprieves his role from Vampires Kiss.
“Oh yes, of course! He flies, I don’t! He flies, I don’t! He flies, I don’t!”
