MISTER LONELY IMAGES

The first images we have of Mister Lonely can be seen here, here, here and here. All photos were taken by Brent Stewart (cinematographer for The Aluminum Fowl and director of Blackberry Winter). One photo shows David Blaine in costume. Werner Herzog, who can be seen there, will now be playing a smaller role than first said. Speaking at the Sarasota Film Festival (Florida, U.S.A.) in early April, Herzog said that due to pre-production on his own Rescue Dawn he was not able to play the part Korine had wanted him for. Instead he now has a smaller role as a priest. Filming for Mister Lonely is currently at a rest but will resume shortly at another location.
