Amazon Cancels Nicolas Cage’s Joe Exotic Series | Digital Trends Spanish

We are not going to be able to see Nicolas Cage playing Joe Exotic in an eventual Amazon series. An article of Variety notes that the company ruled out the project, citing the actor himself, who stated that the company made this determination despite the fact that the scripts were “excellent.”

According to the article, Amazon would have considered that the project had become “past tense” after taking too many months to formulate.

Thus, the company wasted a good opportunity to capitalize on the success of the controversial story of Joe Exotic in the series Tiger king from Netflix.

After the explosive appearance of the series on streaming in March of last year, several projects have set out to continue the story of Exotic, who is serving a 22-year sentence for animal abuse and for trying to murder his rival, Carole Baskin.


Back then, the pandemic and quarantine periods may have contributed to the success of the series; However, today it seems that Amazon lost interest in the story.

“To set things straight, I read two excellent scripts, which I thought were excellent, but I think Amazon finally felt like it was out of date material, because it took a long time to put all the pieces together,” explains Cage.

“At one point they felt it was like catching lightning in a bottle, but that moment has faded into the distance and is no longer a relevant issue.”

Amazon declined to comment on this cancellation. For now, it is believed that NBCUniversal’s Peacock still has his own project of Tiger king on the march, with Kate McKinnon playing Carole Baskin.

It is estimated that only in the United States, the series Tiger king it had 34 million viewers.

It should be remembered that Joe Exotic was waiting for Donald Trump’s presidential pardon to get out of prison, which ultimately did not happen. “I am too innocent and too gay,” he said at the time.
