Nicolas Cage has been offered the role of Ronald Reagan in an upcoming big-screen biopic about the former president’s life, according to a report.
The New York Post‘s Page Six reports that the 52-year-old actor was approached to take on the role of America’s 40th president in a biopic that will “show the conservative president in a flattering light,” though the film’s title or other details were not immediately available.
The film in question could be the upcoming Ronald Reagan biopic from director Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer) and screenwriters Howard Klausner and Jonas McCord. That film already has Robert Davi signed up to play Leonid Brezhnev and Jon Voight set to play George P. Schultz, with Disney Channel star David Henrie playing Reagan in his adolescence.
The film’s producers didn’t immediately respond to a request for confirmation.
