Saint Maud was about the bleakest fucking thing I’ve seen in a long while. I thought it was really well done, but wow that was 84 minutes of bad fucking vibes.

Yeah that’s probably the best word for it. I did like it and by the end i was pretty unnerved. It’s designed to exhaust you and by the time it rounds into it’s final act you’re just ground down by being so close to someone in that broken headspace. i like the choice to not really play with your sense of reality and be pretty clear that no these things aren’t happening, you’re just going to go down with this person and feel both ends of itToggle Spoiler

Nicolas Cage thinks that James Franco may have stolen his idea for what would become Franco's character and role in 2012's SPRING BREAKERS.

Apparently, this all goes back to Cage's pitch about playing a villain in The Green Hornet as a "white Jamaican." Screenwriter Evan Goldberg and longtime creative collaborator with Seth Rogen says that he "spoke to Nicolas Cage about him possibly playing the Russian crime boss villain in ‘The Green Hornet,’ only for Cage to inform them he wanted to play him as a bald man, with hair tattooed on, large prosthetic lips and a voice like Edward G Robinson. They later met Cage in person and he informed them that, actually, he wanted to play him as a ‘white Bahamian,’ with a thick Caribbean accent, and proceeded to act out a scene in which he would be dumping pigs’ blood on Rogen’s ‘Green Hornet’ in a ‘creepy voodoo ritual.'”
..

As the story unfolds, it's revealed that Cage did not get the part but he did recently request a meeting with Rogen where he asked him if he had told James Franco about his idea because he suspected Franco stole his pitch for what would become the character of Alien in Spring Breakers.

..
As for the villain role in The Green Hornet, it ultimately went to Christoph Waltz who definitely didn't take it in the direction that Nicolas Cage was trying to pitch. Rogen went on to say about Cage that the actor actually confronted him about the Franco connection before the pandemic. Rogen says "The second part actually just happened before the pandemic. I mean, he already doesn't like me, is the point. So he'll continue not to like me."
