Shock rocker plans Lewis Carroll role

Marilyn Manson set to play 'Alice In Wonderland' author
Marilyn Manson has announced his intention to play Lewis Carroll in a movie about the ‘Alice In Wonderland’ author.

The shock rocker hopes to star and direct in the self-penned “arthouse horror" movie ‘Phantasmagoria - The Visions Of Lewis Carroll’.

Manson will attend Berlin's European Film Market to help fund the $4.2m (£2.3m) movie, according to Screen International.

"What people expect from Manson, they're going to get here," said producer Alain de la Mata.

Manson, who has directed some of his own music videos, has spent the past year working on costumes and make-up for the movie.

According to de la Mata, it’s hoped filming will be complete this autumn.

The European Film Market is part of the ten-day Berlin Film Festival, which starts on February 9.
