Great News: Nicolas Cage’s Current Movie NOT Delayed Due To Domestic Violence Arrest!

OH THANK GOD! I’m sure we have all been on pins and needles waiting to find out the status of Nicolas Cage’s latest movie following his arrest on charges of domestic assault this weekend, but everyone can finally take a DEEP BREATH because I have some GREAT NEWS: production has not slowed or even stopped. I repeat: there has been absolutely no change to the shooting schedule for Nicolas Cage’s movie after he was ARRESTED by POLICE for possibly ASSAULTING HIS WIFE and definitely for PUNCHING CARS and SCREAMING AT THE COPS. Phew. From the Hollywood Reporter:

Nicolas Cage’s weekend arrest for domestic abuse and disturbing the peace hasn’t affected the production schedule for his film, Medallion, a rep for the movie tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Despite spending hours in jail Saturday, the actor showed up on set ready to work Monday morning, TMZ.com reports.

The Nu Image/Millennium Films action thriller is directed by Simon West. Cage plays a father — and former master thief — who has only a few hours to find his daughter when she is kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a New York medallion taxi cab.

Obviously, our thoughts and prayers are with the parked cars that Nicolas Cage punched and their families during this difficult time. (Also: that movie sounds super stupid and very hilarious, and I am very glad that there will be no delay in its production because I am really looking forward to being able to make more jokes about it ON SCHEDULE.) What a world we live in!
