Nicolas Cage? Warner Herzog? Nicolas Cage? Warner Herzog?
A red-band (read: NSFW) promo for director Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans has surfaced. It’s a kinda-sorta Bad Lieutenant remake of the classic Harvey Kietel cop flick that was directed by Abel Ferrara. Unfortunately, the new one is Abel Ferrara-unapproved.Not that this movie has to be approved by the director, but we figured we would point that out.
The film, which stars Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Coolidge and Fairuza Balk, is due in theaters this December. It doesn’t look good and if it was directed by anyone other than Warner Herzog, I would say no thanks this movie looks like shit. Because of Nicolas Cage, of course. [via Slashfilm]
