Nicolas Cage has insisted that he doesn’t regret any of his film role choices.
The Lord of War actor said that he is not ashamed of his action movie back catalogue.
Speaking to Flickeringmyth.com, Cage said that over the past decade, he was almost trying to make a point with his selection of projects.
“Much has been made of the fact that I made many action movies,” he explained.
“The reason I did that was because the first time people said… ‘You are not an action hero, forget it’.
“What you saw was a dramatic actor acting like an action hero, trying to find characters that were interesting within the genre.”
The 50-year-old added: “Now having done that, I want to focus on the dramatic kind of filmmaking.
“I am in the process of reinventing myself… I am returning to my roots, which is independently spirited, dramatic characters
“I had taken a year off to re-evaluate everything I had done, different kinds of performances… I wanted to find something where I could use my life experience, my memories and my emotions.”
Cage can next be seen in David Gordon Green’s Joe, an adaptation of Larry Brown’s 1991 novel of the same name.
