Way before Tiger King became a word-of-mouth phenomenon. Cage had been in talks to play the lead role. CBS TV Studios and Imagine are taking the show out to potential buyers soon.
The Texas Monthly story by Leif Reigstad details how Joe Schreibvogel built his private zoo in Oklahoma and his feuds with Jeff Lowe and Carole Baskin, both of whom are prominently featured in Tiger King.
