Nic Cage to Star in Werner Herzog’s Remake of “Bad Lieutenant”May 20, 2008
According to Variety, Nicolas Cage, co-creator of Virgin Comics’ Voodoo Child, will be starring in a remake of Bad Lieutenant. Production is set to start in late summer and the film will be directed by Werner Herzog, who very well might be the coolest man alive. The only thing we’re disappointed about is that this film likely will not have any of Herzog’s trademark voiceover, which could make a compelling film out of a reading of the telephone book!
To celebrate this development, we’re offering $5 off every purchase of the Limited Edition Voodoo Child hardcover book of which only 1000 copies were printed. All you have to do is use the code WERNER.

Carey does the script for all six of these issues and really swings for the fences for each book. Each book is filled with great dialogue and excellent storytelling. Whether it is Gabriel journey to avenge his father’s death or the subplot involving two detectives and a string of kidnappings, Carey gives you the impression that he is building toward something bigger.
