In an interview with Uproxx, Nicolas Cage emphasized that he's seriously considering retirement. Cage, known for his roles in numerous successful films, highlighted that he's made a significant impact and feels he has nothing further to prove.
However, he mentioned his plan to appear in three or four more movies before retiring. “I feel that I’ve, at this point – after 45 years of doing this; that in over 100 movies – I feel I’ve pretty much said what I’ve had to say with cinema.
And I’d like to leave on a high note and say, ‘Adios,'” Cage said, as quoted by variety.com! “I think I have to do maybe three or four more movies before I can get there, and then hopefully switch formats and go into some other way of expressing my acting”.
Nicolas Cage: I would’ve liked to have left on a high note
Cage seems to want to try some new things that he has not tried so far in his career. Although he has done a lot, he is still thinking about new projects. Nicolas wants to leave his mark once again in the best way.
“I would’ve liked to have left on a high note, like ‘Dream Scenario.’ But I have other contracts that I have to fulfill, so we’ll see what happens,” he continued. “I am going to be very severe and very astringent on the selection process moving forward.
But for me to do another movie, I do want to explore other formats”. Cage revealed the potential next step. “I have seen things that can be done now with characters and the time they’re given to express themselves.
I saw Bryan Cranston stare at a suitcase for an hour on one episode of ‘Breaking Bad.’ We don’t have time to do that in a feature film, so maybe television is the next best step for me. We’ll see”.
