Back in April, we reported that Marilyn Manson was cast in the movie Let Me Make You a Martyr. In the film, Manson plays a Native American hitman. Manson reunited with his Sons of Anarchy co-star Mark Boone Junior, who co-wrote the film. Today, we have our first taste of what the film will look like.
Rolling Stone describes the characters that Boone and Manson play as such:
Boone plays Larry Glass, a character whom the movie's producers describe as "a drug dealer, pimp and all-around scumbag," who hires Manson's character Pope, a hit man (or "bogeyman," as Manson describes it), to find and kill the grown-up adopted son rebelling against him.
While initially having hesitation, Manson relished the role he played:
"Within the first day, I was asked if I wanted to skin a coyote," the singer says excitedly. "It was already dead. And I was asked to burn down a house and 'kill' a bunch of people, so the answer was 'yes' obviously."
The movie is expected out early next year. Manson also teases the possibility of another film project in collaboration with current touring mate Billy Corgan, of the Smashing Pumpkins:
"Billy [Corgan] has plans on directing and we have a project that we were thinking about doing," Manson says. " It's based on a book that I read when I was making Mechanical Animals, that he had given to me. It might be a pretty grand project, so it might not happen for a little while but it's a script that he's had for a long time. I have to keep it a secret, but it's a great role."
