IGGY POP, GRACE JONES + HENRY ROLLINS ARE IN THIS BATSHIT INSANE SILENT MOVIE
So this is a bit of a crazy one – Iggy Pop, Grace Jones, Henry Rollins and Eagles of Death Metal‘s Jesse Hughes are all signed up to star in “the loudest silent movie on earth”. Gutterdämmerung is the brain child of Belgian-Swedish director and visual artist Bjorn Tagemose, which he describes as a “loud and dark fairytale”, that’s set to be part rock show, part immersive cinema experience – picture a 1920’s silent movies that will tour with a badass live rock band soundtracking the insane special fx.
The film is set in a alternate reality where God has saved the world from sin by taking from mankind the Devil’s Evil Guitar. As a result the Earth has been cleansed into a puritan world with no room for sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll (boo). Que Iggy Pop as the punk angel Vicious, who secretly sends the Evil Guitar back to Earth, unleashing all manner of sin upon mankind.
Things get even crazier when Henry Rollins, as the puritan priest, coerces a girl to destroy the guitar, a quest that see’s her face the most evil rock ‘n’ roll bastards on the planet. Grace Jones plays the only person capable of controlling all the testosterone of all the no good rock ‘n’ rollers – obviously. I did say it was bat shit crazy and I clearly was not joking!!
Here’s a first look at Bjorn Tagemose and co. announcing the project:
***UPDATE*** Rock God and Queens of the Stoneage main man Josh Homme has joined the Gutterdämmerung cast. Homme will be bringing Death himself to life, though instead of weilding his signature guitar he’ll be armed with a bazooka known as “Death’s Dominion”. Parisian electronic duo Justice are also onboard, along side Grace Jones, Iggy Pop and the rest of the already announced Gutterdämmerung rabble.
