Former Guns N’Roses man Slash has produced his first horror film.
Nothing Left To Fear is released tomorrow (October 4) in North America. Slash has also written the score and the closing theme song with vocals from his regular collaborator Myles Kennedy for the film, which was directed by Anthony Leonardi III and stars Clancy Brown, Anne Heche and Jennifer Stone, reports Rolling Stone.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about the movie, Slash expressed his excitement about being involved in the project. He commented: “Everything about doing this is exciting to me, a lot because I’ve had a passion for movies, and especially horror movies, for as long as I can remember. So at this stage of the game, to have the opportunity to be able to produce horror movies is great, and to be hands-on behind the scenes and getting to finally be involved where you can influence the outcome of what the picture is gonna be and what it’s gonna look like is very exciting.”
He added that he would like to work on a movie again, saying “I’m hunting down the next story” explaining that he would be interested in collaborating with the director Sam Raimi. “I think he’s an amazing horror director,” he said. Of his next project he commented: “The next one that I want to do is gonna be something that I have in my mind as being very ominous, and I want to keep focusing on the creature-feature deal, because that’s really what turned me on to horror movies in the first place.”
In terms of music, Slash said that he would be releasing a new record next year. “We’re working on it now,” he revealed of the follow-up to 2012’s Apocalyptic Love’.
