Ru Signs On For Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ms. Balk has just made an enemy of Abel Ferrara, the director of Bad Lieutenant (who recently said of all involved in the remake of the film “I wish these people die in Hell. I hope they’re all in the same streetcar, and it blows up” which was met with a  “I have no idea who he is. Is he Italian? Is he French? Who is he?” from the difficult to faze Herzog – this is, after all,  a man who brushed off being shot with an air rifle with a nonchalant “It was not a significant bullet. It does not surprise me to be shot at.”) by signing on for an as yet unknown role in Herzog’s film. Val Kilmer and Brad Dourif who have appeared alongside Ru in The Island of Dr. Moreau and Humboldt County respectively are also on board. Now just stay offboard those streetcars.
