Nicolas Cage Gets Slick

Nicolas Cage continues his quirky box office ride. The Hollywood trades report that the actor, who has made a string of hit action films since landing the Best Actor Oscar for Leaving Las Vegas last year, is set to star in and produce an action-comedy called Tom Slick: Monster Hunter. No, we are not making this up. The film, which is in development at 20th Century Fox, is loosely based on the life of Texas oil heir Tom Slick, Jr., who spent his family's fortune in the fifties on global expeditions to track down the greatest monsters known to man, including the Loch Ness Monster, Big Foot, et al. Slick was the subject of a 1989 book by Loren Coleman titled Tom Slick and the Search for Yeti. Cage, who is signed on to play the lead in the now-delayed Superman Lives, is currently filming the Brian De Palma-directed Snake Eyes, and has already wrapped City of Angels with Meg Ryan.
