Well, it would appear that Werner Herzog is losing confidence in his desert-based epic, QUEEN OF THE DESERT. A few months ago he was certain it would acquire financing, but now it looks like he's going to pick up a documentary before he directs his next narrative film. Apparently, Herzog's next documentary will center around death row inmates. Naturally, considering how subtle Herzog tends to be, it's titled DEATH ROW.

The film will consist mostly of direct interviews. The film's subjects will be four men and one women, all of whom face execution on death row in the coming months. Herzog has said that the film will have very little music or voice over, which will likely add to the poignancy of it. After all, there aren't many tracks that can really convey the inevitability of death; that is, other than "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles.

No word yet on a release date, but hopefully it's soon because I can hardly wait to see this film. That, and the sooner this one comes out the quicker the filmmaker can get around to filming QUEEN OF THE DESERT. Currently, Naomi Watts is attached to star in that film which would be one hell of a combination.
