“I almost made it, I almost got a movie studio.”

In full promotion ofA Solid Gold Talent, Nicholas Cage multiplies the revelations about his career. Invited to Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show, he for example revealed his desire to found a film studio in Las Vegas, the city where he made his home. For tax reasons, he admits.

“But afterwards, I learned to love him, he replies, laughing. Vegas has been great for me, really. It is both a small and a big city. Probably one of the most unique places in the world. If you want to go to the strip club, you can. If you just want to hang out at a good restaurant with locals, you can do that too. And I had great experiences filming here too. Leaving Las VegasIt was great. Honeymoon in Las Vegas, also. I feel a good mojo here. I tried to build a film studio there, but Elon Musk arrived and all the money I had raised to invest with the city in this project – we are talking about 80 million dollars – they preferred to put it in his company Tesla. Which, ironically, dried up the city. But I almost succeeded, I almost had a film studio.”
