Werner Herzog's My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done Trailer
There are two, completed Werner Herzog films showing at the Toronto Film Festival this year, the first being that Nic Cage flick Bad Lieutenant and the second being My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done starring Oscar nominees Michael Shannon and Willem Dafoe. Thanks to The Playlist we have an early look at the trailer. My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done is loosely based on the true story of a San Diego man who experiences a series of mystifying events, including acting out a Sophocles play in his mind, that lead him to brutally murder his own mother with a sword. Herzog has described it as more of a horror film.
Watch the trailer for Werner Herzog's My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done:
My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done is both written and directed by Oscar nominated German filmmaker Werner Herzog, of many German films previously and recent features like Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn, and Encounters at the End of the World. The screenplay was co-written by Herzog and his former assistant director Herbert Golder. The film was also executive produced by famed filmmaker David Lynch. This will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September and is currently looking for a US distributor. Stay tuned for more updates on both this and Bad Lieutenant, as we expect to hear plenty from Herzog up in Toronto.
