Some folks were outraged when news first hit that Nicolas Cage would be starring in a remake of Bad Lieutenant. Others were confused when Werner Herzog came on as director and announced it had nothing to do with the original Abel Ferrara film. Still others like myself didn’t give a shit either way. As if to answer the concerns, questions, and indifference of film fans worldwide the first psuedo-trailer has found it’s way online. And it is a doozy. Check it out here.
Looks amazing doesn’t it? And the script! “We don’t hit women down south! What are those fucking iguanas doing on my coffee table? You don’t have a lucky crack pipe? Shoot him again… his soul’s still dancing!” Absolutely brilliant stuff here. Always the master thespian, Cage inhabits the role of a crazy cokehead with authenticity unseen since Chevy Chase snorted a six-foot line in Modern Problems. And that accent… if I didn’t know any better I’d say Cage was born and raised in New Orleans!
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans comes out December 2nd… in Belgium and France. No word on a US release date yet.
