Nicolas Cage didn’t get a penny for his Oscar-winning film

MOVIE NEWS – In 1995, the drama called Las Vegas, terminal was a big flop, so neither the director, Mike Figgis, nor the main actor Nicolas Cage did not receive an honorarium for it. As Figgis reported on the Hollywood Reporter podcast, the production company told them that since the film did not make a profit, they would not be paid.


The only funny thing is that Cage won an Oscar for his performance in the lead role, but even that didn’t sway the producers. By the way, the film was nominated for three more golden statues (Figgis won the award for best direction). The director doesn’t regret the incident, because he already received good money for the next production (One Night Adventure), and Cage played for 20 million a year later (A Szikla ), so he doesn’t get upset like that afterwards either.

Cage will next be seen as Count Dracula, but the focus will not be on his character, but on his servant, Renfield gets tired of having to serve the Prince of Darkness forever, so he rebels. The genre of the film is interspersed with funny fantasy horror elements.
