Nicolas Cage is set to star as Joe Exotic in a brand new television series.
When the Coronavirus pandemic first started all the way back in March, people throughout the world were looking for some kind of entertainment to keep them occupied during the lockdown. Of course, Netflix was a premier destination for this kind of entertainment and they were able to immediately deliver with the fascinating docuseries called Tiger King which followed the insane life of Joe Exotic. The show immediately became a pop culture phenomenon, even if the hype eventually died soon after.
For the past few months, reports have been circulating that Nicolas Cage would be playing Exotic in a brand new TV series. While very few details have been reported about the project, it appears as though it will officially be happening. According to Cnet, the show has been picked up by Amazon, who will produce the series.
