First Official Poster for Werner Herzog's New Bad Lieutenant
Remember that downright awful trailer for Nic Cage's new "lucky crack pipe" movie? Yep, the one called Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, a remake of the 1992 Bad Lieutenant that starred Harvey Keitel. ComingSoon has debuted the official poster for the film today, which is (believe it or not) showing at the Venice, Telluride, and Toronto Film Festivals this month. I know, it's Werner Herzog, I get it, but still?! I'm going to see it and will have a review this weekend, so stay on the look out for that. It could be good and that trailer was just bad, or it could be bad and that trailer was just a warning. I'll find out soon enough!
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is directed by prolific German filmmaker Werner Herzog, of plenty of films, including Nosferatu the Vampyre, Lessons of Darkness, My Best Fiend, Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn, and Encounters at the End of the World most recently. The script was written by William Finkelstein, of "Brooklyn South", "NYPD Blue", and L.A. Law: The Movie previously, and is a remake of Abel Ferrara's Bad Lieutenant from 1992. This is a Nu Image / Millennium Films production and is being distributed by First Look Pictures in the US. They haven't set a date, but you can expect to see it soon.
