Werner Herzog's "Bad Lieutenant" is NOT a Remake

Posted: March 11th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Werner HerzogSubmit Comment
Director Werner Herzog (Rescue Dawn) is currently working on a new version of the 1992 "Bad Lieutenant" film with Nicolas Cage, Val Kilmer and Eva Mendes starring. But don't expect the new movie to be anything like the original, because Herzog has not seen it.

"I haven't seen ['Bad Lieutenant']," Herzog told MTV News. "So I can't compare it. It has nothing to do with it."

Herzog clarified that his film is its own story, and though this edition of "Bad Lieutenant" may share a name with its predecessor, it's going to be a cop noir all of its own making.

"It's not a remake," the director said. "It's a completely independent autonomous story." But he did forecast big things for Cage's performance in the lead role previously held by Harvey Keitel. "Nicolas Cage was terrific," Herzog stated. "You will see something extraordinary when you see him on screen. It's the best he's ever done."

i dunno if i sound stupid or smart....but a remake of bad lieutenant that really isn't a remake but still takes the name anyway?..."So i can't compare it. It has nothing to do with it." for all we know it has EVERYTHING to do with it....that's like saying the new beverly hills cop isn't the 4th but in fact the 1st...the smart thing to say would be 'yes it's a remake, but it will not be anything like the original'...i hate to sound mean...but trying to convince people that a movie you are remaking is not a remake just because you haven't seen the original is like putting the s in stupid

I like Herzog but I dunno about this. Cage can be good under a competent director but he's been suspect for too long. Plus how did Herzog manage to fund a movie related to Bad Lieutenant & Cage's insane hair pieces?! We want to know!
