Nicholas Cage not interested in Star Wars Universe
His latest piece of work is The Old Way, that came out on January 6, 2023. He recently did an interview for the movie with Kevin Polowy, popularly known as DJ Kevlar. During the interview he made some intriguing statements about the Star Wars Franchise.
Polowy told Cage that the last time he spoke to Pedro Pascal, Pedro wanted to recruit Cage for the Star Wars universe. Polowy wished to know what Cage felt about that and if there have been any moves towards it.
To which Cage replied stating no, and he’s not really interested in it. He added saying he is a Trekkie (Star Trek fan) and the Enterprise is where he rolls. He grew up watching the Star Trek Movies and was an avid fan of William Shatner’s work.
To him science fiction is a really important genre as the setting can be anything you like, and you can express the way you want to, without anyone asking questions. According to him Star Trek really embraced that point. He concluded stating that he is not in the Star Wars family, he belongs to the Star Trek Family.
Nicolas Cage does not want to be in The Mandalorian or the Star Wars universe (sorry, Pedro Pascal).
