Actor Nicolas Cage jumped at the chance to star in ‘Season Of The Witch’ because he was desperate to play a knight and shoot in a forest.
‘I really wanted to be in the forest. I was making a little movie called ‘Bad Lieutenant In New Orleans’ and I was very hot and I was in these tiny, very humid offices, and I was dreaming about making a movie in the forest. And then this script came along and there it was and I said, ‘I’m going’,’ contacmusic.com quoted him as saying.
‘I was in the Austrian Alps, which was divine, and Hungary. And then I found myself living a dream because I’d always wanted to play a knight. I’d been doing it since I was very small in my backyard and it took this long to put it on celluloid, but it was my dream. It’s also one of the reasons why I became a film actor.’
