MARILYN MANSON has been approached to score the forthcoming JOHNNY DEPP movie ‘FROM HELL’, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

Manson recently flew to England, where he visited Depp on the ‘From Hell’ set in London.

The movie, directed by Albert and Allen Hughes, is based on the story of Jack The Ripper, with Depp playing the part of police inspector Frederick Abberline.

According to filmmakers 20th Century Fox, ‘From Hell’: “Puts an intense urban spin on the horrific legend of Jack the Ripper and unravels a chilling alleged conspiracy involving the highest powers in England.”
