Pedro Pascal in talks to join Nicolas Cage in The Unbearable Weight of a Massive Talent

According to The Wrap, Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal is currently in negotiations to join Lionsgate’s action-comedy film The Unbearable Weight of a Massive Talent, starring Oscar winner Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas, Mandy) as he portrays two fictionalized versions of himself: a present-day version and a younger one. Should the deal push through, Pascal would be playing the role of a Nicolas Cage superfan named Javi. The meta film is expected to begin filming this coming fall, just in time for its March 19, 2021 release.

The 45-year-old actor will next be seen in upcoming second season of The Mandalorian, and Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984, which are both scheduled to premiere later this year.

The Unbearable Weight of a Massive Talent will see Nicolas Cage portray a version of himself desperate to get a role in a new Tarantino movie while also struggling with a strained relationship with his teenage daughter. As he makes his way through life, he also talks to an egotistical version of himself from the ’90s who railroads him for making bad movies and not being the same star he was at the time, now dealing with a mountain of death and making an appearance at the birthday party of a Mexican billionaire that is a huge fan.

While bonding with the man, who hopes to show Cage a script he’s been working on, the actor learns from the CIA that the billionaire is actually a drug cartel kingpin who has kidnapped the daughter of a presidential nominee and is recruited to get intelligence. The predicament gets worse when the billionaire brings Cage’s daughter and ex-wife for a reconciliation and he must take on the role of a lifetime to save their lives.
