The musicians join Lemmy, Grace Jones, Iggy Pop and more for the 'part rock show, part immersive cinema experience'
Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and French electronic duo Justice are the latest musicians added to the cast of Gutterdämmerung.
Described as ‘part rock show, part immersive cinema experience’ the new film comes with the tag line ‘The Loudest Silent Movie on Earth’.
Based on the classic silent movies of the 1920s, the ‘mostly silent’ story will be soundtracked by a revolving cast of musicians, including Motörhead’s Lemmy, Grace Jones, Iggy Pop, Josh Homme, Justice, Tom Araya, Volbeat, Mark Lanegan and Eagles Of Death Metal’s Jesse Hughes. More names are set to be announced in the coming weeks.
The film has been conceptualised and directed by Belgian-Swedish visual artist Björn Tagemose, with a script co-written by musician Henry Rollins.
According to a press release accompanying the film, it tells the story of ‘a world where God has saved the world from sin by taking from mankind the Devil’s Grail of Sin…..the Evil Guitar.’
The film is due for release at the end of 2015 and will also tour with a live band and a live narrator at the end of 2015/ early 2016.
Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner recently paid his second visit to Josh Homme’s Beats 1 Radio Show.
Turner and Homme discussed Halloween, what it’s like to wear a wig and playing gigs while dressed as the Blue Man Group. Homme also told Turner a story about his friend who got arrested for fighting a cookie monster while he was dressed as a banana.
Homme is set to release a new album with Eagles Of Death Metal titled ‘Zipper Down’, which the pair recently described as being “as sexy as Brad Pitt meets Antonio Banderas”.
