The Hollywood Handle: “Butcher’s Crossing” is your first Western movie. Is this a genre you’re interested in coming back to, or do you want to dip your toes in something else?
Nicolas Cage: I’ve never done a musical, I would like to try that. That would be new for me. The Western is something that’s alluded me for 43 years, I don’t know why it took so long. People laugh when I say I’m from the West. They say “No, you’re from California”, well that’s as West as it gets! So it was a perfect fit for me and yeah, I would definitely do another Western.
Stay tuned for more of our coverage from TIFF over the next week and a half! We’ve got lots more on the way.
