Val Kilmer and rapper Xzibit will join Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes in a remake of “Bad Lieutenant.”

Industry magazine Variety reports that Val Kilmer and rapper Xzibit will join Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes in a remake of the Abel Ferrara-directed cult film, Bad Lieutenant.

Werner Herzog is directing and Nu Image/Millennium Films is financing.

Cage is set to play the eponymous police lieutenant, and Kilmer will play his partner.

Herzog’s version will be a re-imagining of the original film, with Xzibit playing Cage’s nemesis, Big Fade.

According to Variety, Edward R. Pressman is producing with Alan and Gabe Polsky, Stephen Belafonte, Emmett/Furla’s Randall Emmett and Cage’s Saturn Films.

In the original film, Harvey Keitel played the Bad Lieutenant, a corrupt and drug-addicted police officer that attempts to seek redemption.
