MARILYN MANSON Will Play A Role In Stephen King's The Stand Miniseries
In a new interview with Revolver, Manson confirms he's not only taking part in the mini-series based off Stephen King's 1978 novel The Stand, but also that he and singer-songwriter Shooter Jennings are contributing a cover of The Doors' "The End" to the show.
Wiley, is also working on some stuff for it, as well. And I have a new drummer in my band, Brandon Pertzborn [of Black Flag, Doyle and Ho99o9], so he'll probably be playing on the record. And Jamie Douglass, Shooter's drummer, he's also played on some stuff. Shooter and I also did a cover of "The End" by the Doors, for a new miniseries of The Stand by Stephen King, which I'm also going to be acting in. I think that sort of kick-started our process for the album, and started us exploring different things. He's very talented in so many ways, and working with him is very fluid. We have a totally different collaborative style than I did [with Tyler Bates] on the last two records. Sometimes Shooter will already be doing something that I was going to suggest. We lock brains a lot together. You know, that could be because of drugs and alcohol, or it could just be because we're in a small room together. Who knows? [Laughs] Or both!
The Stand will be co-written and directed by Josh Boone, and will feature acting from James Marsden, Amber Heard, Whoopi Goldberg, Greg Kinnear, Odessa Young, and Henry Zaga.
