Mendes gets Bad

06.16.2008

Eva Mendes has signed on to reteam with her GHOST RIDER co-star Nicolas Cage in the upcoming remake of BAD LIEUTENANT. As we've been told, the film is less a remake and more of a reimagining of the Abel Ferrara cult classic. Director Werner Herzog even told Defamer that "the name of the bad lieutenant is a different one, and the story is completely different." Sooo, why even bother making it a "reimagining" of BAD LIEUTENANT. Just call it CORRUPT COP or something. I'd like to say I could get excited about a project like this but I've just been insanely disappointed by Nic Cage's recent efforts. That he's reteaming with a star of one of his particularly more disappointing efforts, does not fill me with anything other than morbid curiosity. Filming on BAD LIEUTENANT is expected to begin this summer. MENDES can be seen next in the chick-flick comedy THE WOMEN and in Frank Miller's THE SPIRIT.

The original just didn't really do it for me, Benj. BTW, it's Alexis Arquette in the pic

Nah, it's not Jack. It looks a lot like him though...

And the point of remaking this? The original was great. I'm sorry you don't feel the same way porkchopexpress, but anything from Herzog comes out as a masterpiece, so I'm sure lots of people will eat their words when this comes out. I might be bias, but at least I have a firm ground for it!

Another pointless remake

I am getting so tired of this, Cage is just getting desperate and I don't rate Mendes in the slightest and I will go on record to say she ain't really all that much to look at either. Why go and remake a film that really wasn't all that good in the first place only to change the storyline completely? What did Herzog like so much about the original that he's going to change anyway? Think I'll give this one a miss, thank you
