And you will not be surprised at his desired role:
“I like… oh, here’s something, I’ve been thinking about this, because we have this new, Robert Pattinson as the Batman, which I haven’t seen it yet, but I think he would be terrific, the villain that Vincent Price played on the ’60s show, Egghead. I think I want to have a go at Egghead. I think I could make him absolutely terrifying. And I have a concept for Egghead. So let them know over at Warner Bros. I’m down for Egghead.”
I ask only because I can’t find that post anywhere. Anyway, Nick Cage is playing Dracula in the upcoming RENFIELD flick. Funny thing: at first I had that reversed: I thought he was playing Renfield in DRACULA. Which would be, like, more… on point for him, right? It’d be a lot less surprising, is all I’m saying.
This one I assume I’ll see in theaters. I like me some Universal monster movies.
And if anything’s gonna try to make a decent flick out of COLOR OUT OF SPACE, it’s gonna be a movie that hires Nicholas Cage for the main role. This trailer straight up has everything I expected to see. Does that mean that the movie’s good? Not at all. But it’s gonna try to hit the right notes, at least.
I saw it referenced in Facebook, but when I looked around for the original story it had been deleted. Which is weird, because if the story had turned out to be false, why not just update it? And, for the record: if there’s anybody who can play somebody slowly going nuts from being in contact with an alien colour… out of space… it’s Nick Cage. I’d watch it, I surely would.
