Herzog: All Over the Map

Werner Herzog

The news is out. The Guardian reports that Werner Herzog will direct his own adaptation of Daniel Mason's best-selling novel The Piano Turner. The historical drama follows Edgar Drake, a London piano tuner, who is sent to 19th century Burma to repair a piano that has become central to their peace keeping. No doubt the film will return Herzog to the Southeast Asia he explored in Rescue Dawn. On the other side of the globe, Paste Magazine reports that Herzog will produce a remake of his Amazonian masterpiece Fitzcarraldo, with Daniel Day Lewis signed on to play the lead.
