Marilyn Manson to direct and star in film

Hollywood megastar also to feature?

Marilyn Manson has announced details of his first film.

The star is to make his directorial debut with ‘Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll’, soon to begin production in France. Manson also plays the role of Carroll, most famous for his novel ‘Alice In Wonderland’.

Hollywood megastar, and friend of Manson, Johnny Depp has been approached by the shock-rocker to feature. Manson told VH1: “Maybe I’ll convince Johnny to be in it — I’ll extort him to be in it.”

Manson plans to employ a magician to accomplish special effects that would normally be created with CGI: “I just want to be unconventional by being traditional. I think by being traditional, sometimes like a Hitchcock, it’s almost modern, because people are so used to seeing special effects.”

The film’s expected release date is not yet known.
