Nicolas Cage Recalls How Flops In Hollywood Marginalized Him And How He Knew He Had To Get Back To His Indie Roots

Nicolas Cage has been ingrained in Hollywood for decades given his illustrious career and family connections. Like many actors in the film industry, Cage has experienced triumphs and failures over his five-decade career. Unfortunately, his failures seemingly left a bad taste in Hollywood’s mouth. The Oscar winner reflected on how being marginalized by his Hollywood flops led to him returning to his indie film roots.

From the 1980s to the mid-2000s, the Pig star ruled Hollywood as a box-office superstar with a penchant for genre-hopping. It worked for many years until a series of box office disappointments led to him falling out of favor with the big studios. Cage recalled his last studio film being the poorly received Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Since then, the Kick-Ass star has chosen smaller films outside the Croods franchise and 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Nic Cage spilled to Variety’s Award Circuit podcast about how indie films like Pig saved him. When speaking about filmmaker Michael Sarnoski, he said:

I call him Archangel Michael because I knew somewhere along the way after a couple of flops I had been marginalized in the studios system and I wasn’t going to get invited by them. I always knew it would take a young filmmaker who would come back, remember some movies I had made, know that I might be right for his script and rediscover me.
