"Shoot Him Again - His Soul Is Still Dancing"

Thanks to Ain’t It Cool News for breaking this story, and apologies for taking so long to pass it along. You can read their story here, but I think the trailer works better when the director’s credit is left for the end. Now, the title is admittedly terrible, and the very idea of a Bad Lieutenant sequel sounds like the worst sort of DTV dreck. I’d have to imagine that it was the involvement of the director that attracted the cast – but how the hell did he get involved? Who sent this script to WH thinking that he would be perfect for it? As a lifelong fan of WH, I’d like to think that he brought in the great Val Kilmer, tired of seeing his talents squandered (and I never would have thought that Nicholas Cage could be forgiven so quickly for the last few years of fire-breathing crap)
