HERZOG: THE WRATH OF KLAUS

Shooting for the first episode of Razorhead Films' as yet untitled Mini Series exploring the "untold" (read: made up) lives of classic film directors began this week. The somewhat epic Alfred Hitchcock episode "Hitch By Hitchcock" was pushed back from Pilot to second episode to make way for the more low-key Werner Herzog buddy picture: "Herzog: The Wrath of Klaus" .

"Herzog: The Wrath of Klaus" will see legendary German filmmaker Werner Herzog (played by Adam Ezagouri) share a London flat with off-beat iconic actor Klaus Kinski (also Adam) in the 70's. Their radically different lifestyles and conflicting personalities will clash as they attempt to organise a rehearsal for Herzog's cinematic adaptation of Don Quixote.

For those unfamiliar with Werner Herzog's work, he directed "Aguirre: The Wrath of God", "Fitzcarraldo"  , "Grizzly Man" and, very recently, "Bad Lieutenant - Port of Call: New Orleans" starring a brilliant Nicolas Cage. All of Herzog's films are worth watching and in particular all the ones starring Kinski are highly recommended.

Shooting continues tonight and tomorrow...
