Eva Mendes ponders Bad Lieutenant

She’ll likely sign on for Nic Cage’s latest remake…

As if being snogged by Nic Cage in Ghost Rider wasn’t bad enough, Eva Mendes is looking to co-star in a film that will see him behave much worse than a flame-headed demon warrior.

She’s negotiating for the female lead role in Werner Herzog’s remake of Bad Lieutenant, which will see Cage as a corrupt cop investigating the rape of a nun. Variety is getting arrested on the project.
