Some key excerpts:

Cage is set to star in the live-action show “Noir,” which has been ordered to series at MGM+ and Amazon Prime Video. The series will debut domestically on MGM+’s linear channel followed by a global launch on Prime Video.

Per the official logline, “Noir” will tell the story “of an aging and down on his luck private investigator (Cage) in 1930s New York, who is forced to grapple with his past life as the city’s one and only superhero.”

The show hails from Oren Uziel and Steve Lightfoot, who will also serve as co-showrunners and executive producers. They developed the series with the “Into the Spider-Verse” team of Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Amy Pascal, all of whom will also executive produce. Harry Bradbeer will executive produce and direct the first two episodes.

The role will mark the first regular television role of Cage’s career.

    While Nic Cage being attached is no guarantee of quality, I do find it interesting this is his first TV series. I’m sure he’s been offered TV roles before, so to me this implies he might really believe in the project.

    Lord and Miller being involved is a good sign, too; but I’m not sure how much influence a producer really has, to be honest, so it might not mean anything for the show’s quality.

    Either way I’ll definitely be watching it since I love Nic Cage and greatly enjoyed him as Spider-Noir in the Spider-Verse movie; but with Sony’s track record, I’m only cautiously optimistic.
