Werner Herzog’s Next Project Is VERNON GOD LITTLE?

Werner Herzog The question mark in our title, but things are pretty clear – director Werner Herzog has just announced that his next project will be an adaptation of Vernon God Little novel, written by DBC Pierre. At this moment the whole thing sounds quite interesting to me. After all there’s a little description which goes like this: desperate times throw up the most unlikely of heroes. I can handle that, what about you? Herzog will direct the whole thing from a script written by Andrew Birkin, and just for the record Birkin is the man who stands behind stories like Name of the Rose and The Cement Garden. Not bad team at all if you ask me! Vernon God Little story is set in Texas and follows a teenager caught up in the aftermath of a high-school shooting committed by his best friend. But, if you want even more details about the story, here’s an official description of Pierre’s novel:
Teenager Vernon Gregory Little’s life has been changed by the Columbine-style slaughter of a group of students at his high school. Soon his hole-in-the-wall town is blanketed under a media siege, and Vernon finds himself blamed for the killing (rather than the real culprit, a friend of Vernon’s). Eulalio Ledesma is his particular nemesis, manipulating things so that Vernon becomes the fulcrum for the bizarre and vengeful impulses of the townspeople of Martirio. After a truly surrealistic set of events, Vernon finds himself heading for a fateful assignation in Mexico with the delectable Taylor Figueros.
I still think this has a potential to become one good black comedy. That’s why I’ll keep an eye on Herzog’s work, and you – stay tuned for more updates! Vernon God Little
