Nicolas Kim Coppola, known professionally as Nicolas Cage, recently shared that he's out of a planned "Tiger King" series. The American actor and filmmaker shared with Variety Exclusively that "we should clear the record" on plans for him to play the role of Joe Exotic.
"I read two excellent scripts, which I did think were excellent, but I think Amazon ultimately felt that it was material that had become past tense because it took so long for it come together," staed Cage
"They felt at one point that it was lightning in a bottle, but that point has since faded into the distance and it's no longer relevant."
"Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness" was a Netflix true crime docuseries that became a phenomenon when it was released last year.
