If you never heard the story, back in 2000, Nicolas Cage was the proud owner of a rare Superman comic book worth more than $2 Million.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It was stolen, and not found until late last year, when it turned up among the contents of an abandoned storage locker bought during an auction.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The new owner then sold said comic for a record $2.1 million a few months later.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Cage never saw a dime of the money.
Well now, it seems like that story is ridiculous enough that Hollywood wants to write a movie about it!
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM writers Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon have just sold a script based on the story to Lionsgate. In the film, titled ACTION NO. 1, a group of nerds attempt to steal Cage’s comic book, and Garant and Lennon want Cage to play himself!
No word on whether Cage would take such a part, but if he did, there is no doubt that it would be absolutely legendary!Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â If not, the studio is already considering Jason Statham as a replacement.
