Eva Mendes ponders Bad Lieutenant

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 .
