Nobody seems to know if this trailer is “official” or not or even if its supposed to be released online. Until the men in dark suits and earpieces break down the door of The Flickcast offices, we’re gonna bring you this trailer featuring Nicholas Cage in Werner Hertzog’s remake/sequel to Abel Ferrara’s Bad Lieutenant known as Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans.
The original film featured Harvey Keitel in what can only be described a an “interesting” performance. And while I’m still not sure if this new film will be able to match the insanity of Ferrara’s original, it sure seems like its going to try in a whirlwind of guns, cocaine and women. This time around, Cage’s “Bad Lieutenant” character is not so concerned with the raping of nuns while in a church but instead, he’s tasked with trying to track down a homicide witness — all while having what can only be described as some serious personal issues.
Adding to the exciting mix is the reunion between Cage and his Ghost Rider co-star Eva Mendes, which is sure to ignite the screen much as it did before. Can you tell I’m slightly skeptical if this is gonna work? We’ll know for sure when the film hits theaters, complete with Cage’s other co-stars val Kilmer and Fariuza Balk, on December 2nd.
Meantime, check out the trailer, courtesy of the fine folks at Collider, after the jump.
