“Snake Eyes” partners Nicolas Cage and Brian De Palma will team up once again, this time for a film about the life of the late eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes. De Palma told EW Online that he admires Cage’s dedication to his roles. On “Snake Eyes,” for example, the star undertook the task of finding tacky getup for his character. “I remember him calling me when I was in Montreal,” says the director. “He was saying, ‘I found this suit, you’ve got to see it!’ So he shows me this suit and says, ‘This is Rick Santuro!’ It was a fantastic suit he came up with, and that shirt — it’s hilarious.”
