The Ghost Rider actor is in talks for The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, in which his debt-ridden character is desperate to land a part in Quentin Tarantino's next movie, but finds himself taking on a vastly different role as a real-life informant for the Central Intelligence Agency after befriending a Mexican billionaire who is believed to be a drug cartel kingpin.

Buzz around the project is now supposedly so loud that sources say Cage-whose Saturn Films would produce along with Waves producer Kevin Turin-could be looking at a payday to rival his National Treasure heights. Yeah, this one might be hard to beat.

Nicolas Cage is one of a kind.

The film is co-written by and directed by Tom Gorbican, who created Ghosted, a short-lived paranormal comedy series starring Adam Scott and Craig Robinson.

As described by THR, this will be the plot of the film...
