No Regrets for Nicolas Cage

Ghost Rider

Kick-Ass says he could die proud of the accomplishments in his life and career.

“I have no regrets. I feel I have lived in many ways. I have already put more than one life in my 46 years. I feel I have become different people. I have gone through changes and it continues to be exciting,” the Oscar winner told Empire magazine.

Although he is pleased with his catalogue of work - which includes an Oscar-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas - Cage isn’t finished with the big screen. One project he is particularly excited about is the possibility of making a sequel to Ghost Rider.

“There are talks about the script. It is due in at any moment and we will see what the results are,” he added. “I was always more a fan of Ghost Rider as a child. I believe that Ghost Rider has more in common with the way I like to look at the world.”

UPDATE:  Nicolas Cage vs. Kathleen Turner

Kathleen Turner, Nicolas CageA while ago we told about you Nicolas Cage’s beef with his former Peggy Sue Got Married co-star.  In a new autobiography, actress Kathleen Turner claimed Cage was a bit of troublemaker around the time the two worked together.

“He caused so many problems. He was arrested twice for drunk-driving and, I think, once for stealing a dog. He’d come across a chihuahua he liked and stuck it in his jacket.”

Well Cage was so irked by the accusations he had a defamation and libel suit filed in London’s High Court.  The actress’ UK publishers and Britain’s Daily Mail (a newspaper that printed an excerpt from the book) were also named in the complaint.

Box Office Breakdown: 300 Tears It Up

300

Ghost Rider and Wild Hogs step aside.  Throngs of men in need of a testosterone-laden movie were apparently craving more than just motorcycles.  According to the latest box office numbers, what they really needed were swords.  And blood.  And Spartan women. 

Trapped inside a crowded theater this weekend, I knew 300 would be successful.  But who could have guessed it would be this big??  The latest movie to be based on a Frank Miller graphic novel raked in nearly $71 million.  That’s the largest opening for a movie in March…ever.  Additionally, it was the 3rd largest opening for an ‘R’ rated movie (right behind The Matrix Reloaded and The Passion of the Christ).
