Nicolas Cage blamed Elon Musk for his failed attempt to build a movie studio
Actor Nicolas Cage says Elon Musk prevented him from opening a film studio in the US
According to Business Insider, last fall, Elon Musk’s tunnel maker, The Boring Company, received the green light to connect the Las Vegas strip to the Tesla-filled tunnels. The media outlet indicated that the goal of the boring company is to reduce the traffic in cities by constructing subterranean roads which are served by Tesla vehicles.
Clark County, Nevada, has approved plans for the Vegas Loop, a 29-mile network of tunnels under the Las Vegas Strip. It is building on the boring company’s first finished project: a 1.7-mile-long loop to carry passengers around the Las Vegas Convention Center.
American actor Nicolas Cage blamed Tesla CEO Elon Musk for his failed attempt to build a film studio in the US. The release of Jimmy Kimmel Live! with his participation was published on YouTube.
The artist said that he wanted to open a film studio in Las Vegas and even managed to negotiate with the local authorities, who promised to allocate $ 80 million to implement this idea. However, Cage’s plans were thwarted by an entrepreneur who at that moment came to the city and convinced the authorities to invest in his Tesla company.
Thus, the actor was not provided with studio funding. However, he noted that then he “almost succeeded.”
Earlier, Nicolas Cage, who starred in the National Treasure film series, explained why Disney never filmed the third film in the franchise. The artist attributed the lack of continuation to the inconclusive results of several films with his participation.
“The phone stopped ringing. So I’m like, “What do you mean when you say we’re not filming National Treasure 3? It’s been 14 years. Why not? Well, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice didn’t work, Ghost Rider didn’t sell enough tickets, and Crazy Ride just went unnoticed,” said Cage, while admitting that he likes to star in low-budget projects.
