Werner Herzog Joined ‘Star Wars’ Series for Money to Finance Cannes Movie ‘Family Romance, LLC.’



Lucasfilm announced that Herzog would be joining the cast of its “Star Wars” series, “The Mandalorian.”
Herzog rarely takes on acting gigs or projects that aren’t his own.
His decision came down to money, but not because the director was selling out. 
Herzog needed to get funds to make his new Cannes drama “Family Romance, LLC.”
His latest is set in Japan, the movie features no major stars.
It presented a huge challenge for potential financiers and distributors.
If no one was going to take a risk on Herzog, then he was willing to take a risk on himself. 
The director used his first few checks from starring on “The Mandalorian” to help fund “Family Romance, LLC.”
