Cage Unleashes Crazy In Bad Lieutenant Trailer

Think Werner Herzog can't out do Abel Ferrara? Take a look at this...

Okay, for everyone lamenting Nicolas Cage's decade-long slide into talent-wasting, hairpiece-abusing blockbuster mediocrity -- this one's for you.

Below is the production trailer for Werner Herzog's remake of Abel Ferrara's 1992 cult film -- this time called Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans -- with Cage taking on the corrupt, drug-taking cop role made infamous by Harvey Keitel.

An aghast Ferrara had fired some unflattering words at Herzog and Cage a while back, but we have to admit, this looks kind of insane in a good way. Or maybe just totally awful -- it's hard to tell with Cage these days. Still, he does seem awake, Herzog's no slouch in wrangling lunatic performances (Kinski's the benchmark, after all); plus, there are lizards, Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer and... breakdancing souls. This could go any way, really.
