Terrible Promo Trailer for Werner Herzog's Bad Lieutenant
You don't have a lucky crack pipe? An early promo trailer has been "leaked" online (via Collider) for Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, the Werner Herzog remake of Abel Ferrara's 1992 cult classic Bad Lieutenant. It stars Nic Cage, Val Kilmer, Eva Mendes and, worst of all, Xzibit. I'm not sure if Herzog has just lost his mind or what, because this looks awful. Sure, I understand that Cage's character is supposed to be losing his mind, but still, it looks terrible. I think I would've preferred a Ghost Rider 2 with Cage and Mendes instead of this. Some of you will love it, of course, but I just really can't appreciate any of it.
Watch the promo trailer for Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans:
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is directed by German filmmaker Werner Herzog, of plenty of films, including Nosferatu the Vampyre, Lessons of Darkness, My Best Fiend, Invincible, Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn, and Encounters at the End of the World most recently. The screenplay was written by William Finkelstein, of "Brooklyn South", "NYPD Blue", and L.A. Law: The Movie previously, and is based on Abel Ferrara's Bad Lieutenant from 1992. This is a Nu Image / Millennium Films production, but it doesn't have a US distributor yet. Expect to hear more on Bad Lieutenant sometime in the near future.
