The film is a "sexploitation-serial-killer-slasher-road-movie" based in 1989 and will be the first in a series inspired by horror classics, according to entertainment industry newspaper Variety (via NME). Manson's fiancee, Evan Rachel Wood, who has recently appeared in the hit TV series 'True Blood' and Oscar-nominated movie 'The Wrestler,' also stars in the film.
It will be produced by Edward R. Pressman, who is currently working on 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,' Oliver Stone's long-awaited follow-up to 'Wall Street'.
Manson is a long-term horror fan. Speaking at the Cannes film festival this weekend, 'Splatter Sisters' co-producer David Gordon Green said, "This is a role Marilyn Manson was born to play, and with Evan Rachel Wood bringing dramatic gravity to the ensemble, I have no doubt this will take the horror genre to a new level."
Manson is also working on 'Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll,' his directorial debut, due for release later this year. A fantasy-horror film about the life of the 'Alice in Wonderland' author, Manson also plays the lead role.
