Nicolas Cage Considering Shift to Episodic Television: What’s Next for the Movie Star?

(CNN) — Nicolas Cage is a movie star with more than 100 film credits to his name, but the Oscar-winning actor may be ready to try something new.

“I feel like I’ve pretty much said what I had to say about cinema,” Cage said in an interview with Uproxx published Monday. “I would say, ‘Goodbye.’ “I did what I had to do with cinema and now I want to move on,” he added later.

Cage, who is currently starring in “Dream Scenario,” has four more film projects lined up in which he will appear. Next, he said, he hopes for a post-film career that would allow him to “change formats and get into some other way of expressing my acting.”

“I’m very interested in immersive streaming with episodic television. “I’ve seen things that can be done now with the characters and the time they are given to express themselves,” she said.

Cage’s credits allowed him to explore “the margins of film acting” in all genres, he said, but he feels he may have “nothing more to learn in film.”

Cage describes himself as a learner and seeks more.

“Maybe I have something to learn on television,” he said.

While a change in format is appealing to Cage, the 59-year-old is also looking forward to spending more quality time with his family, including his new daughter he shares with wife Riko Shibata.

“The important thing is my kids,” Cage said. “I can find an episodic show that stays in a place where I don’t have to leave constantly, we can all be together. That, on a personal level, would be great.”

“Dream Scenario” is now in theaters.
