Coming to Theaters -- How Nicolas Cage Got His Comic Book Back! 


This actually sounds funny, and perhaps the first Nicholas Cage-connected movie that I'm excited about in a looooong time!

Previously on Nicholas Cage's comic book caper: In 2000, a group of nerds planned to steal the actor's prized possession -- a copy of Action Comics No. 1 which introduced us to Superman aka Man of Steel.

Then in 2011, the missing comic book was discovered in an abandoned storage locker. Voila, it sold for a record $2.1 million at an auction last November.

Now, THR has told us that Lionsgate is turning this comic book heist into a comedy with "Reno 911" creators/writers Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon. They will also be producing along with Peter Principato and Paul Young.

The big question -- will Cage appear? Will he be game to poke fun at himself and his inner nerd? I think he should! He hasn't done a seemingly smart movie in quite a while.

And sure, Jason Statham's name has popped up in connection with this project but really, he is no Cage!
