Get A Room
Loose cannon/director Abel Ferrara kisses girlfriend, actress Shanyn Leigh during the Chelsea on the Rocks photocall at the 61st International Cannes Film Festival on May 23, 2008. Ferrara’s new film attempts to capture the rich history and mythology of The Chelsea Hotel, past and present. The quintessential fringe-y New York City filmmaker, there may be no better director to tackle such a project. It was reported recently that Ferrara’s fantastic 1992 film Bad Lieutenant will be remade by Werner Herzog. Harvey Keitel’s role will be played by Nicolas Cage this time around.
