Actor Nicolas Cage expressed his opposition to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in movies to replace actors and writers.

He referred to AI as inhumane and a nightmare, stating that he would be unhappy if his art was appropriated by AI.

“AI is a nightmare to me,” Cage said. “It’s inhumane. You can’t get more inhumane than artificial intelligence … I would be very unhappy if people were taking my art … and appropriating [it].”

Cage clarified that his cameo in The Flash was created through CGI, not AI, and mentioned that director Tim Burton shares his concerns about AI.

“When I went to the picture, it was me fighting a giant spider,” Cage said. “I did not do that. That was not what I did. I don’t think it was [created by] AI. I know Tim [Burton] is upset about AI, as I am. It was CGI, OK, so that they could de-age me, and I’m fighting a spider. I didn’t do any of that, so I don’t know what happened there.”

Cage praised director Andy Muschietti, saying, “[Andy] is a terrific director, he is a great guy and a great director, and I loved his two It movies,” but emphasized his criticism of AI.

“I think it’s a lot of horseshit. It’s a giant plagiarism machine, in its current form. I think ChatGPT knows what it’s writing like a toaster knows that it’s making toast. There’s no intelligence — it’s a marvel of marketing,” Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said.
