Is that really the best idea when you owe $14 million to the IRS???
And the worst part? He left the cast and crew in the lurch to go on vacation - in the Bahamas!
Cage had already made drastic changes to the production when he requested that he switch characters, going from playing the role of Nicole Kidman's husband to playing the leader of a group of kidnappers.
Now that he's quit the project, he's left producers scrambling to find a new star in less than two weeks. If they can't find a suitable replacement, insiders believe that the movie has a possibility of being scrapped.
So what was Nic thinking?? Sources say that he's burnt out from doing back-to-back movies with Disney and has been on a grueling promotional tour for Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
That still doesn't make it okay to leave an entire cast and crew wondering if they still have a job!
Tsk tsk, Nic.
