Nicolas Cage praises Chinese cinema

Aug 31 2013, 7:00am CDT | by IANS

Venice, Aug 31 (IANS) Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage has praised Chinese cinema for being "good".

Venice, Aug 31 — Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage has praised Chinese cinema for being "good".

"I am attracted by Chinese cinema because it is good," Cage said Friday at the Venice Film Festival on the Lido island in Italy.

He added that Chinese cinema has many "great actors such as Liang Chaowei and Zhou Runfa", reports Xinhua.

"I have a great relation with China and I am proud of that," said the actor, who has visited China several times.

"There is a great flow in the conversation that I have with the people there, they are always very warm to me and I am very thankful," he added.

The 49-year-old said that he is "going to be in China in about three weeks to play in a Chinese financed film called 'Outcast'". It is an action adventure movie, which will also star Hayden Christensen.

"I am looking forward to starting this, as I have not made a movie with China yet but I was told that the experience is really a good one, and they have fantastic food on the set all day," he said with a smile.

In the Venice Film Festival, Cage is playing a hard-drinker in his latest film, David Gordon Green's brutal American South drama "Joe", premiering in competition.

For the title role, Cage said that he focused on finding the truth in the performance trying to make the character come to life.

"I read the book, which allowed me to find the character and align myself with the director's vision," he added.

Cage, who called "Joe", "one of the most memorable" films he has worked on in his over three-decade-old career, also said in a news conference that he has no intention to retire any time soon.

Screenwriter Dan Gilroy Talks Tim Burton’s SUPERMAN LIVES; Says They Were Weeks Away from Filming Before Being Shutdown

Oct 24 2014 1:11pm CDT | Source: Collider

Tim Burton's Superman Lives is one of the great "What Ifs" of film history.  While today the concept of Tim Burton directing a Superman movie starring Nicolas Cage seems insane, keep in mind that around the time the movie was planning to shoot in 1998, Burton hadn't descended into self-parody and Cage was riding a wave of action film hits (The Rock, Con Air, and Face/Off) following his 1995 Oscar for Best Actor.  ...

'Superman Lives' Screenwriter Dan Gilroy Explains What Tim Burton Would Have Done

Oct 23 2014 3:33pm CDT | Source: movies.com

[Dan Gilroy directing on the set of Nightcrawler] In the late '90s, Warner Bros. was very keen to make a new Superman movie. An up-and-coming screenwriter named Dan Gilroy, whose big calling card at the time was the 1992 sci-fi movie Freejack, was hired to write a script that would be directed by Tim Burton and would star Nicolas Cage as the Man of Steel. It was a dream job for Gilroy and he spent a y ...

Left Behind Review

Oct 3 2014 5:08pm CDT | Source: ign

On paper, an end-of-days movie starring Nicolas Cage sounds kind of awesome and hilarious. (For the sake of argument, let's pretend Unknown never happened.) If nothing else, the idea of Cage running around and yelling at panicked civilians should be a gold mine for unintentional comedy. Sadly, his new movie Left Behind does its damnedest (no pun intended) to make sure Cage doesn't get one single freak-out moment, or really any human interaction at all. Instead, he ...

I am not a Christian, and I never thought Left Behind would ever convert me or appeal to my faith, but I hoped I could at least admire the courage of its convictions.  Instead, Vic Armstrong's adaptation of the best selling novel uses Christianity as nothing more than a ham-fisted plot point in a laughably cheap-looking movie that isn't reaching movie theaters because of the source material or the premise.  The movie doesn't exist by God's will.  ...
