Nicholas Cage Superman Comic Theft Spawns Film

Unknown thieves stole Nicholas Cage‘s Action Comics No. 1 (reportedly worth $2.1 million) twelve years ago, but the lost comic resurfaced recently. The story of the stolen comic will be immortalized as a movie.

The Hollywood Reporter has more about the new film: “The story revolves around a group of nerds who attempt to steal Cage’s copy of Action Comics No. 1, the landmark 1938 comic that introduced the world to the Man of Steel … To comic-book fans, the story of the book’s theft and its ultimate recovery is as thrilling as any tale of a stolen Monet or Degat.”

Cage will reportedly not play himself in the movie, though the script writers had hoped he could join the cast. According to ABC.com, when the comic was recovered, Cage released a statement claiming: “It is divine providence that the comic was found and I am hopeful that the heirloom will be returned to my family.”
