NICOLAS CAGE To Play ‘Joe Exotic’ In TIGER KING Series

After debuting on Netflix and taking the country by storm with over 34 million views, the docuseries Tiger King will be spawned into a new scripted series by Imagine Television and CBS Television.

The network has gotten none other than Oscar winner Nicolas Cage (Face/Off, Con Air) to portray Joe Schreibvogel aka Joe Exotic. Based on a Texas Monthly article Joe Exotic: A Dark Journey Into the World of a Man Gone Wild by Leif Reigstad, the 8-episode series will follow the origin of the man known as Joe Exotic and how he lost himself to a character of his own creation.

Cage will also be serving as executive producer via Saturn Films alongside Brian Grazer and Samie Kim Falvey for Imagine.

Stay tuned.
