The couple first met in Japan in 2020 when Cage was filming Sion Sono’s Prisoners Of Ghostland. 

Cage would go on and make Shibata his fifth wife in a small and intimate wedding on Las Vegas in February 2021.  

They have since confirmed they’re expecting their first child together, which will be Cage’s third.  

The Academy Award-winning actor has two sons from previous relationships: Weston, 31, from his romance with Christina Fulton, and Kal-El, 16, whose mother was Cage’s third wife Alice Kim.

In The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent, Cage plays a down-on-his-luck version of himself in Tom Gormican’s action-comedy.

Cage was honest about the fact that he was somewhat offended by the premise of the film, which depicts his fictionalized self as egocentric and in desperate need of a break or two, in the form of jobs and paydays. 

In fact, Cage went as far as to confess he ‘wanted no part’ of the movie and turned it down three or four times.

But then Gormican reached out to him in the form of a letter to explain his ideas.

‘I thought, “OK, he’s not just trying to mock so-called Nick Cage; there is a real interest in some of the earlier work.”‘ he told The Hollywood Reporter, adding, ‘His tone was more of a celebration of some of [classic onscreen moments] — like being at the bottom of the pool in Leaving Las Vegas or [using] the gold guns in Face/Off.’ 

In the film, a somewhat desperate Nicolas Cage accepts a $1 million offer from a wealthy fan (Pedro Pascal) to attend a party in Spain, which then sets sets off an action-adventure that’s chock full of references to his past roles.
