Deadline has revealed Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) is the latest to join the Nicolas Cage film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent in which Cage will play a fictionalized version of himself going undercover in a dangerous government case. She joins Pedro Pascal (Wonder Woman 1984) and Sharon Horgan (Game Night) in the film.
Haddish will play “eccentric rogue government agent Vivian, who, in a long-standing battle against one of the largest criminal organizations in Europe, forces Cage to go undercover in a crazy, off-book, last-ditch effort to bring them down for good.”
Directed by Tom Gormican (Ghosted) from a screenplay by Gormican Kevin Etten, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent will see Nicolas Cage playing a fictionalised version of himself who is desperately trying to get a role in a new Quentin Tarantino movie while dealing with a mountain of debt and a strained relationship with his teenage daughter.
Facing financial ruin, Cage accepts a $1 million offer to attend the birthday of a Mexican billionaire super fan (Pedro Pascal), and when things take a wildly dangerous turn, the Oscar-winner is forced to live up to his own legend, channelling his most iconic and beloved on-screen characters in order to save himself and his loved ones.
Haddish will be seen next in Bad Trip and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On the Run.
