Amazon’s planned “Tiger King” series, starring Nicolas Cage as Joe Exotic, has been shelved.
Speaking with Variety whilst out promoting “Pig” for which he is scoring rave reviews, the actor revealed that he is no longer scheduled to be a part of the project.
He adds that the series itself seems to have taken too long to come together:
“I read two excellent scripts, which I did think were excellent, but I think Amazon ultimately felt that it was material that had become past tense because it took so long for it come together. They felt at one point that it was lightning in a bottle, but that point has since faded into the distance
