Werner Herzog Answers Your Twitter Questions

Sunday, August 22, 2010 at 12:56 pm

Werner Herzog is the maverick German filmmaker responsible for such cinematic classics as Aguirre, the Wrath of God, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Grizzly Man, and Fitzcarraldo. His conflicts and collaborations with actor Klaus Kinski are the stuff of legends, and he’s even inspired a Twitter page where visitors debate who’s tougher: Herzog or Chuck Norris.

Now fans will have their chance to chat with Werner Herzog thanks to a social media day taking place on Monday, August 23rd, 2010 and hosted by First Look Studios (Transsiberian, King of California, The Proposition). Herzog will respond to questions in real time, talk about the September 14th DVD release of his film My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?, and generally make Chuck Norris ashamed to breathe the same air.

The questions will be taken from those submitted on First Look Studios’ Twitter account by 9:45 AM Pacific Time on August 23rd, and you can also check out their YouTube page for video of Herzog puzzling over the questions from film geeks around the world. Hopefully, Chuck Norris won’t hog all the action.

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? stars Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe, and Chloe Sevigny in a tale of a stage actor who becomes so enthralled with the Greek tragedy he’s rehearsing that he runs a sword through his own mother.
