Val Kilmer and Xzibit are joining Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes for Werner Herzog's remake of Bad Lieutenant.

Kilmer will be playing partner to Cage's motorcycle-riding avenger FBI agent downtrodden cop. Xzibit, who may mainly be thought of as the pimper of rides, will be a new nemesis named Big Fade.

Despite the recycling of Cage's range of three, maybe four, facial expressions, any production with Xzibit on board has got to be a good start. At least the cars will be cool. Yet, can Cage follow in the original footsteps of Harvey Keitel's original Lieutenant? - Anna Dimond
