The famous actor was supposed to play a hitman from a private zoo.

The young Amazon studio has already become famous for its incredibly long production of some projects. For example, fans have been waiting for a trailer for the Lord of the Rings series for several years, but it still isn’t there.

Another of their “long-term construction” was the show about the crime of the “king of the tigers” – Joe Exotic. The role of the hero was to be played by Nicolas Cage. The actor noted that the picture had a brilliant script, reports the Daily Star.

However, Amazon decided that it was no longer relevant. Note that Joe was the owner of a private zoo in which he killed an animal rights activist. After his arrest, he asked for a pardon from Donald Trump, but he was refused.
