According to several sources the spread rumors by the National Enquirer and possibly other sources, the mere mentioning of the actor Nicolas Cage and ghosts,as of recent have had to be fact checked, as apparently the National Enquirer had allegedly printed,that nick had abandoned the newest movie set for an apparent ghostly cleansing.How ever this was apparently another false news story by your true National Enquirer.
On one site it was broken down as to the truth of the entire story.
Nicolas Cage did NOT stop production on his upcoming movie because he supposedly believed the set was “haunted” and wanted the ghosts removed, despite an absurd tabloidreport. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told it’s “total nonsense.”
According to the repeatedly discredited National Enquirer, Cage halted filming on the thrillerSouthern Fury because he felt the presence of “evil spirits” in the house where his character lives. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid that the actor “insisted he felt spooked and refused to enter because it was haunted.”
The magazine’s dubious source goes on to allege that Cage “demanded that spirit-chasers purify the spooky old dwelling” with a collection of herbs designed to “release purifying fumes that drive away evil spirits.” The tabloid’s source further claims, in bizarrely unnatural language, “After the ritual, cagey ghostbuster Nic sniffed the air, detected no evil spirits, grinned at grateful producers and barked: Roll ’em!’”
Despite how insanely ludicrous the outlet’s story seems, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the situation, who laughed off the tall tale before assuring us it’s “total nonsense.” But we’re not particularly surprised by the tabloid’s bogus claim.
Gossip Cop previously corrected the Enquirer’s sister publication, Star, for falsely alleging that the actor had “stalked” former co-star Vanessa Hudgens. In fact, Star was even forced to issue an apology to Cage over the untrue report. The Enquirer should probably also apologize for its phony ghost story.
Nicolas Cage held up shooting of his new flick “Southern Fury” while rating: “Evil spirits are threatening me…
“Producers groaned when Nic took one look a this old house where his character’s supposed to live, insisted he felt spooked and refused to enter because it was ‘haunted.’
“Nic demanded that ‘spirit-chasers’ purify the spooky old dwelling with what’s called a ‘smudge’ – so-called magical herbs including sage, cedar, sweet gass and mugwort mixed in an ancient Indian pot and burned to release purifying fumes that drive away evil spirits…
Nic sniffed the air, detected no evil spirits, grinned at grateful producers and barked ‘Roll ‘em.’”
Then I went down the Cage rabbit hole and learned that he used to own the LaLaurie House in New Orleans, which was considered one of the most “haunted” homes in the US due to the gruesome history of Madame LaLaurie, who used to torture slaves there. Cage said of the home that “Other people have beachfront property; I have ghost front property… I have not experienced anything, but I like a bit of mystery, and the house has such a mystery to it. Some of the stories about it are pretty horrific.” He lost the home in 2009 to foreclosure, but this begs the question: if he wasn’t afraid of ghosts before he lived there, what changed? He did do this movie no one saw:
