    Captain Toupee is the Bad Lieutentant!

    Coming Soon has grabbed an exclusive of this extremely bland poster for the forthcoming Nic "Toupee" Cage thriller "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans."

    I've given up trying to figure out what motivates Cage these days as his filmography is one of the greatest mixes of the sublime and atrocious I've ever seen. He's back here with "Ghost Rider" co-star Eva Mendes in a film that is not a remake of the Harvey Keitel flick.....for some reason Werner Herzog has decided to helm the thing. you can check the poster out below.

     

    In Werner Herzog's new film "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans," Nicolas Cage plays a rogue detective who is as devoted to his job as he is at scoring drugs -- while playing fast and loose with the law. He wields his badge as often as he wields his gun in order to get his way. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina he becomes a high-functioning addict who is a deeply intuitive, fearless detective reigning over the beautiful ruins of New Orleans with authority and abandon. Complicating his tumultuous life is the prostitute he loves (played by Eva Mendes). Together they descend into their own world marked by desire, compulsion, and conscience. The result is a singular masterpiece of filmmaking: equally sad and manically humorous.
