The unbearable weight of massive talent director Tom Gormican offers a crossover film between his new film and national treasure 3. The unbearable weight of massive talent is the new film that essentially serves as a celebration of Hollywood legend Nicolas Cage’s career. The film sees Cage playing a fictionalized version of himself, strapped for cash and looking for his next big movie. He decides to make a paid appearance at the birthday party of a billionaire mega-fan (Pedro Pascal), but when it turns out the billionaire is, in fact, a drug lord, the situation and the references to Cage’s movie get out of control quickly. The unbearable weight of massive talent released on April 22, and even before its premiere was receiving positive reviews from critics.
Cage is an actor who has certainly had an incredibly diverse career. many of the actor’s fans continue to put forward a theory that he will accept any role offered to him. Certainly, it seems that could be true, given that Cage can be found in films ranging from the most critically acclaimed projects to the worst shlock cinema to offer. While those sorts of career choices make it hard for fans to guess what he’ll do next, there’s definitely one thing his fans are constantly hoping for will be his next project: a national treasure 3 film. national treasure and National Treasure: Book of Secrets were made with Disney and follow the Cage historian as he races across America to find treasure. National Treasure: Book of Secrets was released in 2007, and ever since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting a third film.
Now, in an exclusive interview with screen rant, Gormican revealed he had an idea for a half-sequel to his new movie that would crossover with the national treasure franchise. The film would follow Cage as he makes a national treasure 3, only to have make him believe that the treasure map used in the movie is real and embark on an adventure with his national treasure co-starring Jon Voight. Gormican says he would like to title the film The unbearable weight of the national treasure, and uses this interview to urge Disney to grant him the rights to the national treasure franchise. See his full quote below:
[We have] some crazy idea about Nic filming National Treasure 3. He believes the treasure map is real and goes to Jon Voight and says, “Forget it. I’m talking about generational wealth. We should just find this.” And they take the treasure map and basically find themselves in a national treasure-like situation, where they have to channel their character from the national treasure in order to get out of it and save their family.
We would call it The Unbearable Weight of the National Treasure. It would be a Lionsgate-Disney crossover. I don’t know if Disney is up for that. But if you’re listening, Disney, please give us the rights.
While The unbearable weight of the national treasure seems like just a Gormican dream, it might be closer to coming true than you think. The director previously said he would be open to doing The unbearable weight of Massive Talent 2, as long as he felt there was a good way to continue the story. cross with national treasure would definitely keep the Cage vibes alive while staying fresh and new, instead of rehashing his first film.
Unfortunately, The unbearable weight of the national treasure is still in its concept phase, so fans can only wait and see what happens. Of course, the movie really depends on Cage signing up for a sequel, and Cage has been open about how very hard it was to convince him to do so. Massive talent in the first place. However, no one can predict what the future holds – Massive talent reviews are positive, but the film still needs to prove itself financially before a sequel can be greenlit.
