Nicolas Cage to star as Joe Exotic in new scripted series.
Cage is attached to a scripted series about the infamous Tiger King, who has become a sensation following the hit Netflix docuseries Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.
The series, currently called Joe Exotic, will be based on a Texas Monthly article published in 2019 that follows Joe as he fights to keep his private zoo in Oklahoma while feuding with Jeff Lowe and Carole Baskin, both featured prominently in the Netflix series. It'll show how Joe lost himself in his own creation.
American Vandal showrunner Dan Lagana will serve as writer, showrunner, and executive producer under his overall deal at CBS TV Studios, reports Variety.
If it's anything like the wild Tiger King, we are there!
