Nicolas Cage

Buys Pyramid

To Be Dead In

4/17/2010 7:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nic Cage has purchased himself a fancy new pyramid to stay in -- but he doesn't plan on moving in .... until he's dead.

Nic Cage Buys Pyramid -- To Be Dead In
TMZ has learned Cage recently had a 9-foot tall pyramid-shaped super-tomb built in a New Orleans cemetery -- with the expectation that it will be his final resting place. 

It's unclear why Cage chose a pyramid-shaped building -- but it's probably no coincidence that there happens to be a pyramid-shaped symbol on the poster for his classic film, "National Treasure."

This isn't that strange. In New Orleans, people are buried above ground (because of the high water table). Many, if not most, are in tombs. This one may have an atypical shape for New Orleans, but the pyramid isn't unheard of in other southern states that have similar burial customs. If you look at the rest of the photo, you'll see that this tomb isn't particularly large or lavish. Also, pre-planning for final expenses is SMART, not crazy, and I'm not 100 percent certain, but I think funeral pre-purchases may be exempt from seizure/bankruptcy filings, so this might be one of the few things he can buy without fear of having it taken away. This may be the LEAST peculiar thing Cage has done for a long, long time.

I thought when people were totally broke and couldn't afford a house, they bought a timeshare. Is a crypt the next step up in the real estate ladder?

Aren't pyramids supposed to have a preserving force???? Is he a Rosicrucian? He's done a great job with the preservative process so far. Some plugs. Some botox. Maybe some plastic surgery? Why not go all the way and bury yourself in a pyramid.

TMZ, stop being retards. "It's unclear why"? Pyramids are ancient tombs for pharaohs, dorks. Obviously Nic Cage has a complex.



Additionally, he's an idiot for spending all of this money, especially after filing for bankruptcy. Can someone please knock some fiscal sense into people who come into so much cash?

So, in what cemetery does this pyramid reside? There are 37 cemeteries in New Orleans.
