Nicolas Cage Has Very Specific Reasons for Making Movies


Why did Nicolas Cage want to make Drive Angry 3D? Let him tell you, because you would never guess it: "Well, initially what I was attracted to was the idea that I was going to get my eye shot out. The movie Season of the Witch, I wanted to get my eye shot out with a bow and arrow, and the producers didn't go for it. We never really got there. Even though they said they would, it never really happened. So when [Drive Angry director] Patrick Lussier said to me, 'You're going to get your eye shot out in a movie,' I don't know why but I just immediately said 'Yes, I'm in,' because it was something that I wanted to do. It's as simple as that." It's fair to say that Nicolas Cage got a very different message from A Christmas Story than the rest of us. [Movieline]
