Eva Mendes is ready to be a Bad girl.

The actress is in talks to reunite with her Ghost Rider partner Nicolas Cage for Werner Herzog's update of Abel Ferrara's 1992 pulp classic, The Bad Lieutenant, Variety reports.

Little is known about the 34-year-old beauty's role, but it should be a far cry from her and Cage's family-friendly comic-book collaboration. If this Lieutenant is anything like its predecessor, expect plenty of skin, not to mention a heaping helping of profanity.

The original Bad Lieutenant starred Harvey Keitel as a corrupt New York detective with a penchant for gambling, drugs and sex, who decides to seek out redemption while investigating a nun's rape.

Mendes next hits theaters in September, costarring with Meg Ryan and Annette Bening in a remake of George Cukor's The Women. That will be followed by another comic-based flick, Frank Miller's The Spirit, due out at the end of the year.

Shooting on The Bad Lieutenant kicks off in late summer.
