God bless Werner Herzog because sometimes we need a reminder that cinema can unpredictable and unexpected. Last night, word arrived that the director had made the unlikely choice in casting Russell Brand in his upcoming school shooting satire "Vernon God Little." But less than 24 hours later, that's hardly the most bonkers choice he's made.

Russell Brand's verbose, rapid fire wit hasn't translated so well to the movies. Aside from being perfectly cast in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and the spinoff "Get Him To The Greek," he's otherwise mostly floundered in Hollywood productions, largely because it forces him to reign his spontaneous energy. But if there's any director who we'd love to see try and get something different, funny and worthwhile out of the comedian, it's Werner Herzog, and whaddya know, that's going to happen.

If anyone knows how to toe the line between the dark and funny, it's Werner Herzog. In both his documentaries and features, the director often sheds a light on the absurdities of even the most harrowing of situations involving his characters, and he's signed up to helm a new project that will once again find him in uniquely tricky territory.
