Nicolas Cage's ACTION NO. 1 Heist Lands at Lionsgate

A different type of Superman movie is in the works at Lionsgate. THR reports that the real-life story of the theft of Nicolas Cage's Action No. 1 comic book is being turned into a movie. The story was written by Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!) and will give a comedic take on the theft that took place in 2000.

The Ghost Rider actor had his first-appearance comic book stolen by unknown criminals, only to have it turn up in an abandoned storage locker and sold at auction for a record $2.1 million. The criminal is still at large, but the movie will offer "a fictionalized take on the story in which a group of nerds band together to pull off the heist."

A role has not been written for Cage, and THR states that it is very unlikely he will star in the movie. It would be cool if Cage actually did star in the film, because he is so self aware. Either way, I would love to see this movie in theaters. Garant and Lennon are hilarious, and this should be a funny film. What would you do if you happened upon a rare comic book in a storage locker?
