Cage said that in 45 years of his career and after performing in 100 movies believes that he has said pretty much everything, "I’ve had to say with cinema" and now aims for a shift to different formats. Nicolas Cage while in an interview with entertainment website Uproxx, said he admired the space long-format that storytelling gives to explore the characters.

Cage said, “I do want to explore other formats. I am very interested in immersion streaming with episodic television. I have seen things that can be done now with characters and the time they’re given to express themselves."

Cage who is 59 and nearing almost the retirement age said, "I saw Bryan Cranston stare at a suitcase for an hour on one episode of 'Breaking Bad'. We don’t have time to do that in a feature film, so maybe television is the next best step for me. We’ll see." 

Cage, who received various accolades including 'The Academy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a Golden Globe Award,' said that before bidding adieu to movies he will take up three or four more projects after critical assessment. Cage added, "I’d like to leave on a high note and say, ‘Adios.’ I think I have to do maybe three or four more movies before I can get there, and then hopefully switch formats and go into some other way of expressing my acting... . I mean, I am going to be very severe and very astringent [sic] on the selection process moving forward."
